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.



  • Horrible.

    Horrible interface, keeps me signing out every time, shows my presence even though I turned it off like million times. Skype is trash.
  • Horrible. Just horrible.

    Skype is a really great concept, but is THE MOST UNRELIABLE app I have ever used. Sometimes it works, usually it doesn’t. Good luck getting it to connect an iPhone to any computer. There are constantly messages stating to update, which never works. I’m really disappointed.

    After some updates I'm adjusting my review. I appreciate the developers trying to improve this relatively quickly. As said before, it looks fancy, but some things are still not around. It's still impossible to have phone (non skype) contacts appear under 'contacts' as before; they are now in some secret realm of my account that I can't even reach... they just vanished, which is super annoying for us users of skype as a phone equivalent. This, plus the recent removal without warning of all support to freetalk devices for Skype phone numbers, and personalized voice mail messages have left me considering cancelling my phone and subscriptions with skype. Hope those services will actually be implemented soon again!!!

    Every time I want to use this application, it tells me my password it’s incorrect. I follow the instructions and verify my account, create a new password and the next day, it’s the same problem. I have to create a password everyday! Help!

    They do not own all of the gifs that I have. I refuse to download my gifs to them. They do not own them! Skype is a terrible app. but furthering predatory behaviors.
  • Great improvements by Skype.

    I have been using Skype over 10 years now and it has undergone some rapid and progressive improvements. It’s really awesome.
  • New update features feel insecure

    By Orbitalwolf79
    I’ve been using Skype for years now and I really don’t like much of the updates. I have an iphone 6 and I get a lot of lag time between messages. Not only that but calls are dropped frequently and I don’t like the new camera interface. There’s also this new feature that pops up called Cortana and I don’t find it comforting that she is so persistent on knowing all of my info or location. I don’t want that feature and would rather have the option turn that off completely. I would also not like to see her “chat” just left there and want to be able to delete it. Skype people, help me out?
  • Worse than ever!

    By sailforme
    Ok, this is now the worst video calling app on the planet. I can't even give it one star. My son was supposed to have a Skype interview today and he couldn't login to his account, and he tried three different computers. This crappy app may have just cost him a job with a great cyber security firm. Thanks , MSFT, for yet another disaster! Thanks for the response. Won't use it. Your service is horrible.
  • Strange theme

    By Sunchenjia
    As a long time user, I have to say that this version is not working out well. The template is just very confusing and inconvenient. Takes a lot of time to get used to this version. I believe as a communication app, u should just be simple and easy to use. Please change it back ..:(
  • Trash

    People who approved this new version clearly don't use Skype. Completely out of touch. Idiots. How the f*ck do you get rid of the stupid "enable push notifications" message? Most aggravating thing on th planet.
