New in version 8.25

We're listening to your feedback and working hard to improve Skype. Here's what's new:
- Stability and reliability improvements.


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.

التحديث لهذا الاصدار ليس جيد👎🏻
ahlonabb on 7/20/2018
يوجد خلل في هذا الاصدار والكثير من الاخطاء في الاشعارات عند قفل الجهاز لاتأتي اشعارات الا عند الدخول الى التطبيق وحالة ثانيه عند فتح الخط تشغل السماعة الخارجية من تلقاء نفسها👎🏻
Love this app
rainbowtaylor on 7/20/2018
This app helps me keep in contact with my family
pandagirl436 on 7/20/2018
Lately ever since I try to access my photos on this app it crashes.... I’m not sure why this is happening.... It doesn’t need to be updated.... This has become a pain for me.
Baroness Lynda on 7/20/2018
Calls are being charged even when the other party hasn’t picked up
Integrated Calling
IntegrCallingSucks on 7/20/2018
Please make integrated calling optional or just kill it altogether cannot imagine the scenario where someone would want it clogging their phone
Needs an update
Mastersw0rd101 on 7/20/2018
The connection of the video call is always having problems even if me and my girlfriend are literally right next to the WiFi router. And I want to be able to go into our conversation and look up key words to be able to remember all those texts we have but instead I spend HOURS scrolling and I haven’t even gone into last 4 months of our texts. It’s a great app all together it just has some bugs that they need to work on. I’ll give it another review when and if they update the app but yeah it’s a great app
Integrated calls
bassssssssssssssdddddddddssssd on 7/19/2018
There’s no feature to disable integrated calling on skype Please bring this back. Now!
As good as FaceTime!
Jcisco97 on 7/19/2018
First time user & pleased. Getting used to it took a little work but works as good as FaceTime.
Bad Experiences
TB_Review on 7/19/2018
Microsoft seems to ruin everything they touch.
Luis Montalvo Veliz on 7/19/2018
Me encanta Skype, hay nitidez. Es una gran herramienta para los propósitos de charlas grupales. Es fantástica. Los abrazo, Bendiciones.
scalawag52 on 7/19/2018
You stole around $40 from me because I didn’t have a MicroSoft account to be able to get money out of my skype account. I have found better and more honest resources to communicate with.
It’s good
Ronery084 on 7/19/2018
My only complaint I have is when you’re using the camera to swap camera from the back then to the front camera—the image, the box that shows your face, stays black. Hanging up the call and re calling that person does not fix the issue.
Lost everything I wrote
Queue-less on 7/19/2018
I hate apps that wipe everything you've composed in a text window when you briefly switch to another app to check on something, then return. For a messaging app, that's just plain stupid.
Changed settings
barbara12345678 on 7/18/2018
We have used Skype for many years and all of a sudden on my phone it requires a Microsoft account whereas we have a Skype account which works with my husbands phone. This is most annoying
Integrated Calling
Nick Aceves on 7/18/2018
The option to remove integrated calling was removed. Add it back. I use skype on a daily basis but the integrated calling is annoying and I would like to turn it off.
Far away
🌟Rockstar🌟 on 7/18/2018
While in Iraq, used the app to call home. It been wonderful!! Mostly dependable (more the WiFi issue then the app). Im super thankful for Skype!
Still no 3D Touch!
Nathan Smith on 7/18/2018
This app used to have it and they took it away. Why Microsoft can’t get their act together and put it on is beyond me.
group section disabled
antonio 3276 on 7/17/2018
why you disabled group section in new version?
This App ROCKS!! on 7/17/2018
I am a vocal coach and I've been teaching over a Skype connection to Europe and the USA for a little over a year now, but boy oh boy this new Skype feature enables me to practically work in realtime, creating piano scales within the 2-minute time limit and transmitting them within the chat window to my pupils who then play them back to work with me on the call. An absolutely AMAZING app! Voice coaching on Skype has never been easier. And the connection is the best it's ever been on Skype. I'm over the moon with excitement. This app makes my work all the more easy and great fun. I love it!
Hairybeast212 on 7/17/2018
I don’t know what you’ve done or why, but you’ve now completely screwed up Skype. Unusable.
Great product
Jmt092899 on 7/17/2018
Used this while deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq as it was a great link with my family at home.
Microsoft account needed now?
agomez1113 on 7/16/2018
So if I don’t have a Microsoft account I can’t access my old account? Umm I’m getting rid of this app on my phone then... shame.
Awesome app
Worknesh on 7/16/2018
I can use it on my iPad phone computer (I think) and more! I love this app keep up the good work
Cannot access my integrated contact list
Smrtcar on 7/16/2018
On my iOS, I really dislike not being able to access my iPhone's Contact list to make Skype calls. I'm required to copy and paste telephone numbers. Skype is becoming a hassle to use. I only NEED it for another 10 months and if I don't get used to the new display or functionality, I will cancel my subscription at that point. Feel free to contact me if you wish additional feedback.
Much better thanks!
pezworld on 7/16/2018
You fixed what was bugging me!
Raquel Maxine on 7/16/2018
Both I and the people I speak with using Skype are experiencing connection issues when sending messages. Sometimes I’ll send a message and then go do other things and it won’t go through until I open the app again. Other times it’ll just say connecting forever even though my WiFi is fine. Also notifications aren’t showing up. Please fix. It’s a nuisance.
Miked110 on 7/16/2018
It’s so good for my son and his friends no matter what he can always contact them
S+S 10/11/12 on 7/16/2018
Everything’s great, but I wish I could put the person on hold from the app. I also wish I could mute the other person from the app.
What a great update made me loss my account
Steampunkzter on 7/16/2018
Hey you know that account I never sign into and never actually care to remember that you’ve had for 5 years well this update kicks you off that account good luck getting in when you don’t even know your email or your password ..... thanks THANKS
Still best at voip, still a poor app
FunkyCrumble on 7/16/2018
I’ve always found skype’s voip quality above all others, and this still holds. But... the (now notorious) app redesign really made it unusable. Subsequent updates have made things better (removing snapchat-like gunk), but seem half-hearted, keeping useless features like “highlights” and a “camera” shortcut smack in the middle of the bottom menu (what for?). Would love to see the app going back to a pure voice/video communication focus and abandoning its attempts at becoming a social network.
Useless Pulse on 7/16/2018
I’ve used Skype for years, both in my pc and iPhone/iPad. Recently it “updated” itself in my iPad and changed the previous version of the app, screen etc. It deleted my frequent contacts list which I always used and only had to tap to make a video call. Stays Online even if you get off the app. Can’t find how to delete call history. Not user friendly. The Help tab doesn’t help.
Good Service
Carolin Rojas on 7/16/2018
Very nice Communication.!!
WHY would YOU RUIN the APP?!?!
Bebebuddybo on 7/16/2018
Completely unnecessary & horrible updates have totally ruined this app.
Salaah ahmad on 7/15/2018
More Features Has Lost Its Main Feature
jarodmoves on 7/15/2018
I have used the application for ten years and the mobile app since it was out and the ability to receive a call on the iPhone is complicated and left us looking all the times for alternatives. Microsoft, programs without strong leadership will muck it up if you let them. You can do better!
Needs a setting to disable integrated calling
🙌DaddyShark🙌 on 7/15/2018
Power skype user here. Having my skype calls appear in my phone’s call history is a nuisance as I would like to keep my work life separate from my personal life.
Not working
LucyW22F on 7/14/2018
Skype will get frozen and won't let me hit "skip" or "next" on the choose your theme screen, please fix it. I'm on a iPod by the way.
Integrated Calling
PBXxX512 on 7/14/2018
Just when you resolved the issue of presence and I reinstalled the app, you took away the OPTION to disable Integrated Calling.
Lazy programming
athh225 on 7/14/2018
What is the point of having Skype on my phone if the app does not scan through my contacts on my mobile phone when I want to use it for calls ? I always have to copy and paste phones numbers every time I want to call someone using skype 😔.
Unblocking Issues
11498savagehd on 7/14/2018
I block somebody now I need to unblock him and I am unable to do that this is been an issue with Skype. I can’t believe that Skype cannot fix this issue this is a constant problem I’ve had with Skype. There’s no way to contact Skype so you have to get on and ride to review a bad review in order to get somebody’s attention. That’s pretty sad.
Skype User
NYC NYC Boy on 7/14/2018
After update I cannot stop integrated calls on my iPhone X... This is very inconvenient!!! I rated you with 1 star for this step!!!!
Notifications sounds
Ralbuqrq on 7/14/2018
It’s not allowed to change the notifications sounds, sometimes I can’t hear when I got a message.
Intergrated calling
Tati.antics on 7/14/2018
Again you update and don’t even listen to your customers concerns. The forced intergraded calling is not good for business. If it’s still not addressed by the next update I can no longer use the app. For personal reasons, I cannot have my calls show on my iPhone calling list, therefore I’ve been unable to call anyone due to it always showing up on my phone. This is a problem that is being addressed multiple times. Please address it and fix it. I don’t want to let go of this app, but if our concerns not be addressed I have no choice too.
Integrated call
ma__kia on 7/13/2018
I dont want to see my skype calls on my phone list why we dont have the integrated call option any more? Will u bring it back for next update ? Its like a hell we need it you give mire option why you take the last options?
A perfect application!
BR0319 on 7/13/2018
Love Skype and use it for long. Unfortunately, in some countries I cannot use it due to internal IT policy. But in general I enjoy it so much!
Voice call
marehalli on 7/13/2018
Excellent. A clear voice without any disturbance. Really has connected the world making the same a small village.
Removed integrated calling option?!
thehowards702 on 7/13/2018
Removed integrated calling as an option not my gamer friends can call and interrupt whatever I’m doing it just rings as a phone now. It was good to have the option. Why removed? Cheesy update. Flawed
Skype is an archetypal chat app
Ummmmmwallpaper on 7/13/2018
I think skype has adapted and it’s an ok app. I want to use skype to talk to variety of users. Not everyone uses competing chat clients and skype has its place.
Great video and audio quality
Movingwithgrace on 7/13/2018
Haven’t used Skype in years.... despite having to go through a whole rig-a-ma-roll to get online with it, the audio and video quality are quite impressive and worth the inconvenience caused by the Microsoft login process. Once my account was updated, I found use and effective tips among all the video services I have used lately.
