The Skype you know and love has an all-new design, optimized to help you stay connected with the people you care about most.

What can I do with Skype?

• Communicate easily with the people in your life through free Skype-to-Skype video/audio calls, personalized messaging, and low-rate calling to mobiles and landlines around the world.
• Message: send photos, videos, voice messages, emoticons, Mojis, react to messages, and more.
• Groups: Free group video and audio calling for up to 25 participants, group chat with up to 300 people, plan or play with bots, add-ins, and personalized features

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.

Very poor


Older version much better. The “lmproved” version is decidedly less informational. Preferences decidedly lacking. I don’t want my whole address book accessible to SKYPE. I want total control of my SKYPE contact list and to see easily contacts online as before. Looking for an alternative to SKYPE. Gets worse and less user friendly as improved.

Worked just fine!


I haven’t used Skype in a while, but this call was clear and had no discernible lag-time

Skype upgrade 07/14 is horrendous - what the heck

LV Brit

Microsoft could not have done any worse with this upgrade. Terrible to use - status of users not known (I want to know if they are online and not just ‘active’). They have added unknown bot, chat history has blocked invitations and lots of useless information. Trying to sign out is difficult. Time to find different software.
