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.

Reviews From google play store

just had a great vid call with my son who's visiting family in TN. while i'm still in MN. had 0 issues with video or audio stall or freeze even while he was moving around. I like that Skype always gives you a chance to give them feedback if there are any issues, that makes me feel like they are always trying to make things better. I am fairly new to Skype and I am pleasantly surprised and absolutely pleased with them.


voice call was hard to hear, poor volume, and the SMS was slow sending messages. The previous version was worse, but if this is the best Skype can do for their updated version, forget it, one even has to pay for the poor service. Confusing to navigate, and slow response. Definitely much better communication messengers out there than Skype, and free to make calls. I'm going to deactivate, and have a party that recommended Skype try the other messenger app that I know is quicker, easier, functions.


S3 hangs in call mode with broken connecton, unable to hangup or kill from memory. This one was from 4yrs ago, I gave a 2*. Now it got better. Finding real person by their own and known Skype ID is just a colossal pain.


I give the permission of storage for save the downloaded file. But when i download any files from skyp it show me error. It creates problem. What the issue? Before some days it was working. Now it's create issue. Please solve this issue first


Bad quality of voice and call drops. I have paid subscription many a times either calls are dropped or not audible. Would not recommend at all. I am waiting to finish my recharge done already.


the app was 5 star but this new update messed things up. I can no longer turn speaker off when video chatting which just makes everything so loud even when you turn volume down. also when I have my phone landscape I can no longer pinch the screen so I can see the other person's full camera view and I have to move up and down. please go back to the old way.


looked for hours to test video on Skype on android for a business call. No option to do so so the application is useless to me. how could a designer possibly not have this option clearly on a menu ? a useless app appallingly designed.


useless. person on the other end can only hear me for the first 30 seconds. I'm on fast Wi-Fi and still having this issue. Use Whatsapp instead!


Good but we cannot search the name of person with their email address. as hangout have such facility. can you improve it? then it will be best app in the world hangout search name account by email although sometimes many names are similar. we don't judge to invite perticular person. very bad from when active or not seen on account should be improved


The new update is either too buggy or has completely destroyed Skype on its own. I can't use other apps without Skype having a meltdown, either getting a reconnection issue (and my WiFi is fine.) or my mic refusing to pick up my voice when not directly on the Skype app (and my mic completely works). I don't know what happened but it's awful right now.


This is really cool. I can talk to my husband and actually look at him while conversing. Wish I had this when my dad was still alive. I'm going to add this app to my sister's phone when I visit so I can see her too!


I used to really like this, but for some reason, the option to switch from speakerphone to the ear piece is gone. Now every call is on speakerphone making for a miserable experience.


latest update has been absolutely awful. if it isnt handing every 2 minutes, its my mic not picking up my voice


Unbelievable. I can't use my Skype credit easily anymore. Absolute garbage. Congratulations, you've driven this into the ground. Edit - still garbage


Speaker phone works with the latest update, but as soon as I hit call I have to tap the speaker button. Otherwise, it will disappear and I will have to recall. You'll earn another star once this little bug is fixed. Glad it semi-works now. Keep it up! UPDATE: This issue has finally been fixed. Thank you!


Calls qualty OK. One of the few VOIP that allows calling out landline (good price) and mobile (too expensive!) Unfortunately it is difficult to use. You need to simplify the user-interface if you want more costumers. with an easier, more intuitive interface, I would use a Skype subsriptition instead of local expensive providers.


I don't know why Skype isn't more prevalent; rather than signing in or messaging through Facebook/ Twitter/ pinterest/ disqus (the latter being the only one I use) I'd like to see an option for Skype - it ought to be ubiquitous.


Great free app. It is as good as your cellular provider. And hopefully these video chats are not recorded or spyed on by Skype, 3rd or 4th parties and the government. But I doubt it.


I am able to participate in church services via Skype when I am away. I also can use Skype to call my brother's phone in Canada at a very nominal rate. Two years later I say the same thing.


I use to love this app but now after 2 to 3 minutes the sound cuts out. very glitchy and just keeps getting more and more glitches. I hope that is fixed soon. I do like the app but glitches are annoying .
