Free calls to friends and family

Skype lets you place free voice and video calls to other Skype users, or, for a small charge, voice calls to landlines and mobile numbers. Further, the refreshed app sports a new interface with a focus on messaging, making it easier than ever to fire up a chat.

Most of the changes are related to the chat screen, which has been split into three tabs - Find, Chat, and Capture. The Find screen allows you to quickly share content from a variety of services without leaving Skype, such as searching for a GIF from GIPHY or finding a YouTube video. Microsoft is calling these services "add-ins," and more will continue to be added.

Moving onto the Chat tab, you can now add your reaction to specific messages in Skype, similar to Discord and Slack. Text bubbles can also have gradient backgrounds, just like middle school PowerPoint presentations.

Finally, the Capture tab has a viewfinder for taking photos and video. Once you're done recording, you can annotate the screen with text, emojis, and drawings. A new cool feature is called 'Highlights'.

Skype features Skype to Skype calls, group video calls, instant messaging, the option to call phone numbers and screen sharing. 

App ChangeLog

Reviews From google play store

Skype is a convenient and free platform for texting. I like that it does not require a phone number to create an account. Generally works fine, but frequently had glitches. Messages will be sent but disappear for the recipient. Most recently it is cutting off the last line of messages. Often struggles to keep up with the availability status of people. I don't use the phone feature much but it has worked fine when I use it.


Works fine, but i have noticed a serious bug. I had a group call, which ended with the app in background by the others leaving, but the system was like if i was still in a call. I could have noticed, that my volume changer, which is set to media by default, was still setting in-call volume after the call. Because of this, i have missed all 4 of my alarms in the next morning, because they didnt fire while "being in call".


My husband and I are both using the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and are having issues with not receiving notifications when the other messages. If we are actively on our phone, we don't even get the banner pop up letting us know the other has sent a message, or a notification symbol in the notification bar saying a message has been received. We have tried changing settings, force stops, clearing cache, restarting phones, and uninstalling and then reinstalling. It only made it worse.


We have used Skype to stay in contact with family and some close friends across the world for many years, mostly family. In the early days it was largely about Skype saving international call costs but it is now the medium of choice - the video calls bridge the distance between us wonderfully. The messaging tool is really good too, and professionally I found it really useful for technical calls including screen sharing.


I don't usually leave reviews, but this time I am. Only a few months ago I installed the new version of Skype, to check if you had changed the new design to the old, classic one that I like, prefer and want, which you did. I was happy about it. Now, recently, I was going through games and apps in Play Store, and saw that Skype had an update. Clicking on it, I found that you changed the classic design I like, back to the new one, so I uninstalled it. Change it back to classic and I'll reinstall


Super buggy. Randomly when I answer video calls, it doesn't play the audio over my speaker. Just the small speaker used for normal phone calls. So I'm forced to use headphones. Also the button to switch to the back camera randomly doesn't work. Not going to use Skype anymore for video chats.


I don't understand, why do I still need this outdated app which has glitches on all the platforms I use (Win 10 and Android). Half of the messages lost in space, absence of any notifications, updates without warnings or requests. I think I have to say good bye to this piece of past.


Not great. Skype is using all sorts of tricks to get you to communicate with friends/contacts for no reason other than to promote Skype. It would like you to say hi to everyone, tell everyone you've ever contacted that you're on Skype and generally nudge, wink and send emojis for the sake of it. As a serious VOIP communication tool, it's trying hard to be Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp and really demeans itself.


Skype is the most rediculouse app! Extrem quantity of unnecessary features, main things as sound and connection works not as it should.every time they force to change layout without ask the user! Intuitively often not possible to find what were at privioce version.i do not understand why they need all time change places for functions!!! It is so disturbing and frostraiting!!! Can you try to put things at your home to another places every week?I think,only idiots would do this.


Makes video calls well but there are two major problems. 1. Skype creates dozens of duplicate contacts in my OnePlus 6T for each contact. Meaning many people appear dozens of times as Skype contacts making the list so long it's not usable. The only workaround I've found is manually linking these contacts but more always appear. 2. I don't get calls or notifications unless I have the app open. I'm not sure if this is a setting but it's odd default behavior.


Great for calling cousin, my friend, (and another one). Of course it can lag, but amazing! U can also do it out of app, so u can play game with people while on a call. It also allows video chat, translator, and video chat in large groups! Download it.


I seem to have a problem with making Skype calls every time I use it, I either get a ringing sound, it freezes, have no sound, or call cuts off. I if had a choice I wouldn't use Skype at all I'd rather use WhatsApp but I don't want my number to be seen...


I like Skype generally, but now there are alternatives, and that's good too. I don't know anything about Skype social networks. I don't find the interface entirely easy. There is inadequate help. In umpteen years, I've never been able to speak to a Skype employee, and that has been frustrating.


I feel like all these people giving 1 stars to the app needs to consider some things. Like maybe they have a much older device which will obviously have everything slow, or maybe their wifi can't support higher quality vid/audio which is why they can't get a good quality from the app. I use this app since it's free to call anyone, and I use it to call my friends in different countries all the time.


I am having issues with my skype, I had it installed on my Phone and laptop. However the one on my laptop stopped working, (would'nt open) so i uninstalled it. However now i am trying to re-install it on my laptop, google play has made me log into my google account (fine). However it says that Skype is already installed, and does not give me the option to install it back onto my laptop. I have logged out of my google account on my phone, however it still does not let me re-install on my laptop.. I would appreciate iof Skype would let me know how to overcome this issue.. Thanks


Buggy, barely works & absolute displeasure to use.. Microsoft's been going downhill recently Edit: Still a pain to use, pretty sure Microsoft's got bots here in attempt to boost their rating.. Edit: Still barely works, why cant my business use discord? Microsoft needs some competition to get them working.. everything about the company has gone down hill in the past decade..


Utterly useless. I previously uninstalled due to Microsoft takeover chucking me out and changing my account details. I now find it requires my details such as date of birth but won't let me enter it. There are so many alternatives you really don't need this. Avoid it like the plague that it is. There will be no third chance.


You can't use the dialpad to make menu choices while subtitles are on. So you turn subtitles off. But then it still doesn't work. You have to "restart the call without subtitles". But how do you do that? Where are the settings for this app, anyway? Why does it suck so much?


Skype is now a bad app. All the new updates keeps making it worse than the one before. The people making the updates must be completely idiots !!! So lately skype system always go back to active status regardless of your settings or preferences, it just ignores your wishes and goes back to active. Time to delete that app.


Everything is signed up and contacts established in the Windows 10 program, and then I get the Skype app and nothing has been replicated to the app. From research, this was an issue from 2 years ago and still nothing has been done! I can't even find my friends in the search in the app.


Skype is ridiculous it has contacts saved and I have no clue who they are and can't delete them. I did a quick reply and it didn't show up in the conversation it feels sloppy like most Microsoft apps on Android and I like Microsoft as a company but save yourself the headache and keep your Android phone Android or get an iPhone they have everyone's apps and there reliable.


Chats icon scrolls to top even if there are chats with new messages. Expected that it would scroll to the first of chats with new messages. Fullscreen video play doesnt work. Instead of fullscreen, there is a caroucel at the bottom of the screen and video that takes the upper part of the screen


My biggest issue with Skype is the auto answer and showing of miss call or messages something auto answer doesn't even work and all I get is miss call when I open my phone snd actually get into the app same with messages I literally never receive notification for message and can you guy make auto answering for a specific friends not all my contacts


There is a problem with Skype I can't make any call or even write a message When I send a message it is not delivered to the other side!!!! A serious problem that doesn't allow me to give lessons through Skype and when I want to report a problem a blank page appears nothing more


Useless. The only app in the world that doesn't accept my correct email, together with its correct password and considering me a robot. This app is the only robot not letting me sign in and use for communication , any communication app is better than this.


I love this app to do Skype out calls to fast line phones in my home country. I used to love this app to do chat, but I think the quality is no longer the same, hence only four stars.


It is taking a lot of time to connect to a call.. also in between it is logging off without my knowledge..and the next time i opened it i didn't find my account and i could not log in..so this is my 5 th account in skype because this problem is arising every now n then and im really tired of it😤 pls try to fix it


Overall it is okay. Ive been using skype to talk to my lover who is thousand miles away . But the only problem is it keep on disconnecting our calls this day . I believe that it is not our network problem because both of us have a strong network . So , i hope you really can fix this issue . Thank you


When I'm on call and I try to tap on loud speaker, it would automatically turn my screen to black. I can't turn my screen on while on call. This only happens when I use Skype for calling.


I don't see any Help or send bug report section in the app, so I'm just putting this here. I'm trying to edit a message and what it does is copies the message but only has the X choice, so I can't edit or send it anyway. I already installed the latest update and it's still there.


Perfect. I used it to call my family and friends abroad but also to make international calls. Works great. I put 10$ credit on it and I've been calling multiple times internationally. It's cheap and efficient.


I am using this app for years already, but in the last year it is getting worse with every update. Lately, it does not make a sound whenever I receive a massage or a call. It only vibrates, although my phone is not in a mute mode.


Need more improve to voice and video call. That will HD clear VOLTE call. Also improve icon. Nowadays the time is notch, round corner & fullscreen displays. So you need to optimize these. We expecting it will comes as soon.


Skype is getting better and with every day with every update it actually helping a lot of people to connect with each other as they want to be connected and actually now a days updates are genuinely based on user requirements. very happy using skype thanks a lot to all behind skype***** i wish i could give you more than this


login in main page already. but suddenly pop up something went wrong! ? what the hell? then i cannot login already. i click my email address, then same.. pop up something went wrong!hello? what system problem is this?


When it worked it was wonderful, for sending photos, video chatting, even sending a VM. But when I download the app on different Android devices it looks and acts differently. Really sucks that way!


I cannot log into my account when using my phone's data, nor when sending messages it just says connecting, but non of my messages gets received. On wifi it works perfectly fine. I have done the update but nothing changed.


This app is good But I have been signed out of my account Multiple of them and it's beginning to upset me please help! I have friends who use this app and i want to be able to text them please update this app and fix it!


I use it to keep contact with my Mom who lives in China. There is no delay in our talks, and the voice quality is excellent. No complaint at all.


Translate is not working in video chat. I chat with my girlfriend in the Dominican and it will translate what I say but not what she says. It will however translate perfectly in the chat function which is nice but would really like it to translate on video like it did before.


I have been using Skype for at least 12 years, the time at my current address. Maybe longer. Can't be sure because Microsoft took over and I set up Skype with a Microsoft account but signed in differently before then.


Works great but has some annoying tics... MS seems to always try to get your contacts in either bulk import or with each call. Defaults for contacting people change to "invite to Skype" so you have to keep an eye out. Otherwise a great app.


I dont understand why I keep using it. The call quality is horrible, and it kills my battery and makes my phone hot. It also ends my calls unexpectedly, and glitches out all the time. I dont reccomend


As for mobile its always a clean call. Unfortunately on a PC it likes to take over your audio settings (easy fix though). But as a mobile app? Darn good quality sound and connection even with my friends when they go international.


Keeps updating to a version that won'twork on my Galaxy S Tab 10!!! 8.52 has lines through video from my camera. 8.38 works fine but it keeps updating back to 8.52 even with Auto-Update set OFF in Google Play. Argh!


It just works. Many times you won't be able to place calls and the app won't respond like it should. Another poorly designed Microsoft product. But it works, at least...


Call is slow. Theres a lot of delay in my voice and ofc we interrupt each other. And the screen doesnt turn off during call (proximity sensor isnt used) my screen turns off during normal call


When I try to add an image (via +sign) I get multiple thumbnails of the same images, up to four! And half of the folder does not show (SD Card). Tried reinstall, clear cache, no change. Samsung S10.


Yes, it does its job and call quality is usually good, but I HATE this app because of the lack of features. Please bring back Skype Classic.


Well, the app is pretty smooth but there is a problem with the notifications. I don't get notifications sounds for incoming chat messages.


Whenever I call my friends with my camera, it ends the call. but if I don't have my camera on it works perfectly fine. my camera works on every other app I have on my phone. Skype help please.


My last video phone call was pretty neat. It lagged a bit sometimes, but it was good overall. Oct 10th Update: I had a better conversation through skype now then back then.


Drop-down box for birth date is broken. Would not drop down. I had to install on a different device in order to create an account. (Android 7)


Skype brought revolution when it comes to communication over internet. There are other apps that do similar things, but Skype will be always number one.


Really good for what it is, reliable, fast and effective, the only downside sometimes is that notifications may not be pushed right but other than that, a really good and solid messaging app


I am experiencing difficulty in dowloading and uploading pictures and files in my Android phone. please fix this. My connection is normal. Please take care of this. thanks I already update my Skype App but still the problem isn't solved.


Discord has too much traffic and not enough to stabilize issues. Skype as a result is less crowded, more stable and as a result, better by being less popular. Alot of Discord's paid features are free as well


I use Skype on a nearly daily basis, and have for years. It works extremely well, and it's free. The rates to call phones abroad are reasonable.


I like the app but now that ive switched phones from an iphone 5s to and a sylio 5 i can no longer turn my camera on and video call with people, ive given the app permission to use my camera and everything but it still doesnt work


The biggest problem I have with this app, and i know it's not just me, is that the notifications don't actually make any noise.


Skype is a very good app for those people who love to call then chats. If you're having Online lessons or a urgent call. If you're one of those, then you immediately need to install this app


Notifications does not work at all!!!!!! Factory reset does not help. Absent notification categories in Skype App. Fix it.


The only downside to this app is that it doesn't always notify me when I receive a text, so I have to manually check if there's been any. Other than that, I think its perfect.


I cannot buy call credits because everytime I select the package I want and click "continue "... It goes back to showing me many other subscription options.


Great for contacting people who are not on wi fi. The call quality has been very good to date. Will definitely be my go to from now on when travelling. And potentially for making international calls from the UK.


It's good, the quality of audio and video is good and steady. I'd say reliable its reliable.


Status keeps going from invisible to active when I open it. Defeats the purpose of being invisible. Has been doing this for a month.


Usability is rather poor for what was such a revolutionary product in its heyday. From the app's navigation to simple things like the inability to edit a phone number...


1 star less for there is no feature to show " touch " in screen share. And it does not share sounds if opened app like music player in screen share.


None of your website functions are working and even agent could not assist in getting the auto recharge disabled. Lately not functioning well.


Notifications stop appearing at times. Sad that Skype has come to the point where it has to show ads.


Loud n crystal clear sound quality. I m in love with this app. Keep it up skype. Highly recommended.


I'd like to see more functionality for Chromebooks. Unable to copy and text from messages & can't press enter to send message. I have to press the button with the touch screen.


The app is awesome when it works, but it has trouble connecting to wifi sometimes. And what is most bothersome is that it has trouble connecting when using data too. Also, when it has trouble connecting it seems to stop altogether. It doesn't matter if I close it, delete the cache. I've already had to redownload the app 3 times in the course of a few weeks.


Had to get a new phone. The notification sound was working for a few days but it only vibrates again. Someone please fix the sound problem.!!!


Wow! First time subscriber and I can't even get help or support. It took me to a Nokia website and when I retried it, all I got was this teal blank screen. So what's all this hype for Skype??


Great app for communication. Easy way to share files. Easy to react. Afterr all this is awesome. Recommended ✌


Message not update. Only notify me after one day has passed. When open app it takes a long time to sync the latest message.


Only 3 stars because 1. STILL no split screen and 2. Answering through notification doesn't work and your message is only sent when you open the app. Sort it out please


This year I've discovered and liked Skype again in terms of calling landlines abroad. This is really great regarding costs and quality.


We always get thru, know exactly what our calls cost, and are able to have a clear conversation with our party.


Since the last update, I have no sound when notifications come through. I have checks all phone settings and they are right, issue with Skype no doubt.


Best video call platform, easy to share screen for better explanations and share documents and links while still on a call.


No notifications. Doesn't run in the background at all despite being allowed to. Even in the app, no notifications again despite being allowed to, tried everything.


Cannot open skype on samsung galaxy s 8..after I type email and password it stops working. I tried different email login and still won't open. Opens on samsung s 5 without issues. Any advice please?


My emoticons/gifs etc don't load or even display. I'd be less irritated if it was just an issue with either my mobile Or Windows Skype but I have the same problem on both. Please help!


3 people in a call and recording family calls are great! User interface not that intuitive but been that way for years.


For a 1st time user, I haven't seen or used an app like it before, the stream is clear with no cut in speech, so far so good down here.


I used to enjoy this app. Now it's really hard to enjoy Skype because of how horrible the quality is. After update, among various others. I feel now it's safe to say that there is no way of saving this platform. Seeing how it continues to worsen despite all these new updates. Another recent change I don't like is the fact that a bot got angry at me five times in a row over something stupid as a profile picture. It's nothing graphic. I've had it for a few years now. Why is it a big deal now?


It isn't opening, even though I used it once after download for Android phones, I've just updated it and no it's NOT working. NOT working on my MacBook OSX either!! What?!!


I noticed I can not delete messages sent to others but only delete my side of the Conversation . This requires a 2 Star Rating for Skype.


Recipients shouldn't be able to see the sender deleted a message. It sends the wrong signal when someone realizes a message was recalled.


This always works well for me. I mainly use it for calls to landlines. Works well for that.


Useful app. It's Integrated with my email (Microsoft account Outlook website). Though the android app version is lagging very badly.


after registered, i am facing trouble to log in. They said.. Oops.. Log in error but didn't clarify, what is the actual cause. Now i am uninstalling..


Previous cooment: Hope there is an option to modify the status such as, 'Im away at my desk", "sleeping", "Doing laundry", something like that. But so far, the app is good. New comment: lots of bugs during video calls and no sound when a message arrives (checked notification settings, still the same.) And no options to mute a particular group chat.


Downloading any recorded video issue. Most frustrated thing ever happened with me while using this application. When I start download the recorded video call i unable to see status of downloading. Whether it downloaded or not. The problem I face in both laptop and mobile. Skype team should take care of this.


When i first got it, everything was fine..until it signed me out and now it wont let me back in. I have tried everything it tells me to do and yet i get nowhere.


It's slow I don't recommend this to everyone as it keeps lagging and it says online when not and it's always asking to rate the call and if you say there was something wrong they don't fix it


I love this app. Everything you need from Skype on my phone. Works well with no glitches.
