The Skype you know and love has an all-new design, supercharged with a ton of new features and new ways to stay connected with the people you care about most.

What can I do with Skype?

• Messaging made awesome: More than just text. Send photos, videos, voice messages, emoticons, Mojis and more. You can also respond to any message from your contacts with reactions.
• Great for groups: Add your favorite people and start chatting. Use groups to plan together, play together, for staying in touch or just for hanging out.
• Call everyone - Skype, mobiles and landlines: Free* video and voice calls make it easier to stay connected with friends and family. You’ll also enjoy low calling rates to mobiles and landlines worldwide with Skype. 
• Never miss a moment with quick capture: Quickly swipe to capture photos and videos. Make them your own by adding emoticons, stickers and annotations.
• Share Highlights: Keep others updated with Highlights from your day. React to any highlights with awesome emoticons or send a private message about that highlight. Your highlights only stay visible for 7 days to your followers.

*Skype to Skype calls are free. Operator data charges may apply. We recommend using an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection.

Upgrading to the new Skype may result in the deletion of content from older conversations.
To save photos and videos that were previously sent or received in an older version of Skype, save that content to your camera roll/photo gallery before upgrading to the new Skype.

Editors’ Notes

From the new baby to the latest sales figures, Skype makes sharing our big news better. Anyone can start calling, texting, and video-conferencing—or even dialing landlines—thanks to the intuitive design. With zillions of Skype users to connect to, it’s one of the most useful apps on our iPhone and Apple Watch.

👎👎👎👎👎 WORTHLESS!!!


Skype has become an absolutely worthless company. Thanks Microworst for ruining it!!!
Used to call via Skype daily, now I use it a few times a month, at the most. There are so many glitches and ridiculous problems, it’d take too long to list them all. For example, I used to call my own number to check if I have any voicemails (I’m overseas a lot). I can’t do that anymore. Now I get the “you cannot call this number on Skype” message!?!?!? Why not? It’s worked for years and years, why not now??
The very worst though are the robotic and oh, so clueless online responders who use the “developers response” prompts to give us their canned and nonsensical “we’re working hard on fixing the problems, please check the latest updates” messages. They don’t even read the comments here. They simply copy and paste their robo-replies. 👎👎👎👎👎
Yeah, as I predicted, it took mere seconds for Anna P. - developer bot to respond with her ridiculous copy & paste “make sure you have the latest update” comment. Hey Anna P. - make sure you learn how to read!
- if there are no bots than you should take your time to read about people’s frustrations instead of copying & pasting your ridiculously canned answers.

Getting better but........


The app is getting better but why do you have to put things dead in the middle of the screen at the bottom?? Before it was those 2 dots and now there is a plus + sign? Why not put all the icons together on the side of the screen left or right?? I know it looks balanced but sometimes it’s right on top of people or work I am doing. Please clear the screen of everything unless it’s on the sides or corners. Also if I need to take a screen shot, this plus sign + is right there in the middle of my shot.

Also whenever another call comes in or any alarm goes off the call get put on hold and the hold emblem is there but I can still here the other side and there is NO WAY to undo the hold without hanging up the call. No fail EVERY TIME.

Also, the volume issue still exists. There is no way to turn down the volume UNLESS you are on Bluetooth. Then you CAN turn it down.
