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.

    I've been using Skype for years. Always relied on it... the new version seems to be buggy.
  • Garbage

    By Truth131992
    Unusable piece of crap
  • Notifications Are Broken

    By Princess Lur
    For the past week I haven’t gotten a single notification from Skype. I’ll open the app and a group call will be going on, but there won’t be a single notification that anyone called. Some other people I know have complained about the same issue this week. My friends thought I had been ignoring them all week. Not amused.
  • Very happy!

    By Lil Schubes
    I have been using this app for 2 years to video chat with family across state, across Country and even between the US and Africa on a regular basis. Usually the quality of video and audio is terrific. On rare occasions it may freeze or we may get cut off, but I wouldn’t be without it!
  • Poor quality all the way around. Disappointing

    By Rfpm
    Calls often poor quality. Interface is confusing. Caller ID doesnt work. Bogus “That number doesnt exist” errors. Bogus “Insufficient funds” errors. In short the app is a mess. Extremely frustrating.
  • Broken.

    By Bloodyrains
    Ever since the U.I update this app became garbage. U.I is still awful and things break with every update. It's infuriating trying to send a message because the entire thing glitches out constantly.
  • Freezes permanently on launch

    By Pradak3r
    After the latest update to the app, it freezes upon launch. I uninstalled the app, reinstalled it, and it worked again until I signed back into my account. Then, I got the same issue. Please fix this as I use Skype for one of my primary means of communication.
  • 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

    By Mukhiait
    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.
