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.

Re-think UI ASAP


It’s been a long time with the new Skype message-centric UI.

Skype has been the leader of the internet calling applications, since the get go. Why try to change it to compete with messenger like apps? We don’t use Skype to chat, or send photos. We use Skype to call our friends and families - voice and video calls, and it has been the best at it, until the new UI appeared trying to force us to chat now? It’s confusing to use, I don’t like it.

Please change Skype back

Linking with Facebook and Instagram

Bryant Rodrigo

So you know how skype has higlights now like how snapchat does with their story, fb with my day and so on.

Would be cool if they link up with that. Like how I use instagram to record a story and when i post it, it gives me the option to put it on fb for my day too. I have skype friends that dont use other social media apps. Would be cool to let them know whats been up with me.
