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.

Skype is Dead... Time to Move On

Skype team, I've been patient. When I lost the ability to sign in to my original Skype account about two years ago, I said "okay, that's fine" and I created a new one with my Facebook. There were some hiccups, but it worked fine for about a year. Then, with a new update I lost the ability to log into the account I created with Facebook. Begrudgingly, I created a new Microsoft account as suggested. Logged in with my *new* new account. And now, with this new update, I can't even search or add contacts. Neither on Mac or on iPhone! The UI is horrendous and convoluted. Cortana and all the bots are annoying. Tons of frustrated users are posting in the community and no one is reaching out with answers. You've created quite possibly the worst and most unusable update for an application I've ever seen. From here on out, I guessing I'll be using FaceTime, WhatsApp and Google. Microsoft has shot itself in the head with this one. Well done.

Fine, but hold function is awful

I use Skype frequently for international phone calls, and for that, it serves its purpose. What I don't get is the drastic redesign that happened a couple months ago. I find the whole thing really confusing and unintuitive, but the WORST is that since that update, the hold function is incredibly frustrating. I've never purposely put someone on hold on Skype, but if I'm on a Skype call and an alarm goes off on my phone, Skype automatically puts the call on hold. As far as I can tell, there is no way to take them OFF hold, so every time this happens, I have to end the call and call back. Ridiculous.

I actually like the new update

The update is sleek and much more functional than the old system. The old app system would crash constantly and deliver low quality video streaming, but now the app runs smoothly and looks great while doing it.
