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.



  • Mostly fixed still needs improvements

    By DJ_iYce
    New: Still needs fixed: -When an alarm goes off and you’re in the middle of a call you have to end the call or the call stays either silent or on hold. -Still uses data on WiFi even when the call is made over WiFi and cellular data is turned off -Lags iPhone screen/apps/freezes apps/freezes iPhone -Phone is WAY too hot to use or touch while in normal call
  • Simply the best app

    Thanks a lot for building this app, it means a lot to me, when communication needed in times of urgency
  • App crash

    By Faridtaee
    Skype is a great app but in the most recent version whenever I tap the search box the app freezes or crashes. I tried to close the app and relaunch it but it didn’t work. I also restarted my iPhone but the problem still exists.
  • Bad

    By leavealike
    It constantly crashes and is unusable
  • Voice mail feature

    By Cosmo LA
    Voicemail is the problem for me – it needs to return to the previous function where you could have a personalized voicemail message. Now it is an English female Voice generic introduction to the voicemail which confuses my clients-they think they have the wrong number.
  • Apple Watch app???

    By tanmcclaran
    What happened to the Apple Watch app? I am not crazy about his new functionality. I am missing calls and messages left and right. Most often contacts call my cell instead of getting the call through Skype apps. This new update needs work!! Concentrate more on what makes Skype great, and less on making it a social media nightmare. My husband always says do you want to thing and do it better than anybody else, that’s what your customers want from you. The one thing they can count on.
  • The newest updates

    By Gamefreak92498
    I thought this was Skype. Not Snapchat. This is why Discord is being looked at as inherently better. Because the Skype team has been killing what their app actually is for. Calling and messaging. Why change it just because a couple kids think using filters is "cool" and "fun". It should have stayed the way it was, but with better infrastructure. Disappointing, and the reason why I now refuse to update Skype now on any of my devices. It just makes everything worse. 2/5 because I guess it still does the basics, even if it's terrifying to use now with it's gross UI.
  • Terrible !

    By Enchanted ❤️🌸✨🦋
    One of the most frequent that I use to communicate with family and friends around the world, but the iPhone app is just awful ! It doesn’t sync well with other devices and the main server and despite having set the notifications to alert mode on my phone, 70% of the time the messages don’t show up unless I actually open the app, I’ve missed important time sensitive messages in this way. It’s not possible to have my laptop with me all the time but my iPhone almost always is with me. One would think that during this time and age this shouldn’t be an issue at all. Please fix this app !!!

  • “On Hold issue”

    By the girl who was blue
    Whenever I’m on a call and another IOS app interferes, i.e. when my alarm goes off, the call automatically goes on hold. Once it does I have absolutely no way to take the call off hold. There’s a window that pops up on the call screen showing that it’s on hold, but I can’t tap it and there’s no other button. When I leave the call screen in the app to the conversation lists, I then cannot return to the cal screen at all, and I had to close the app to hang up the call. I’ve read other’s reviews with the same problem. Skype’s latest updates seem to have been focused on becoming a social network (that no one wanted or uses) rather than fixing basic user bugs.
