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.



  • Messaging Not Available

    By umm 'Amir
    Dear Skype Support, I have not been able to send messages from my iPhone and find no way to correct this. Also, when I receive a call, both iPhone and tablet ring and both will disconnect no matter which one I attempt to answer. Suggestions Please. Khabira Al-Muhyee one who walks wit horses
  • Terrible User Interface

    By Kaprow
    Call quality is reliably good, but that's about it as far as redeeming qualities for both the iOS and Win10 apps. It seems the Skype product team is more concerned with making things look "pretty" (and they failed) than ensuring the app provides useful, accurate, and easy to use features to customers. Voicemails are scattered across multiple "conversations" rather than one consolidated list. Call history basically non-existent. The UI is jumbled and not intuitive. Etc. I'm a product manager and software developer...I give this app a double thumbs-down and will not recommend until major improvements are implemented.
  • Features missing from new version

    By Halo master.
    MSFT come on. Regressions after regressions. Don’t you track your bugs and test? Don’t just add new features and break existing features. Feature like delete conversations used to be there now missing with Bots. Please allow us to delete conversations history. We want to try out your boys and stuff but after trying we can’t delete if we decide not to use. It clutters the screen. Don’t MSFT folks use Skype?
  • Missed calls

    By JaruskaB
    I would like to say that I have used this product for many years. Great product but on the iPhone the missed calls show up tangled with your missed calls and their missed calls to you. I would like to see an improvement on the message and picture sharing side as well.
  • This app WAS great but no longer

    By Johnny Carcin0gen
    I've had this app for years, and it always worked. There were never any issues but I decided to upgrade recently. Big mistake. The last two releases have made it almost unusable.
  • very slow and complicated

    By nick.kyiv
    ms has spoiled skype, it is a fact. the slowest and most complicated messenger i’ve seen.
  • There needs to be a few improvements

    By Maytè
    Besides a few bugs here and there and minor glitches, I personally believe that skype for iPhones and all other apple products should be able to leave skype and there be a little bubble of the person you’re Skyping in the corner of the device so hat you can still video chat with them while also doing other Things you need to do. Android skype already has this feature but for some reason it’s not available on apple versions? I feel as if this is something that will benefit everyone within the apple skype community and would love to see this feature ASAP.
  • Stick to your day job

    By Sonatsm
    The app has become way too social! I don’t want another WhatsApp, this is my Skype account. The camera feature, which I assume is supposed to be a sort of Snapchat for Skype, is downright annoying. Also, there’s this frustrating issue where I see a missed call in my phone notifications but it is nowhere to be found on the app itself.
  • I'm not going to repeat what others have said

    By Tech_M
    Every complaint people have been making about the "new Skype" changed being over complicated and lacking useful features it used to have I completely agree with, in fact I'm sure you've heard of many times.... however it's been almost half a year now since the changes happened, and a large majority of these problems haven't been fixed, and I know they won't be. A problem that I will say that might be fixed is that when I create a poll using Skype a built in pole features, I seem to be the only one who can use it, and only in the chat it was created in. Seriously though, Microsoft has slowly been making Skype worse and worse ever since they bought it.
  • You guys need to fix this

    By Mekanix13
    I honestly really like Skype, and it’s a good way to keep in touch with friends, especially if they don’t have phones themselves. But recently I’ve had trouble with a bug, every time I try to open Skype it crashes and I have to delete it and re download and sign in again just to use it once, then when I go out of the app I can’t get in and I have to repeat the process.
