Skype for iPhone

Skype for iPhone application logo

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.

Haha  G6bstg  1 star

Updates this bad arent by accident. Either way, good luck Skype.


Where is the status feature?  Jdargis  1 star

Please bring back the status features for Away, do not disturb, offline. Why did this even get removed? My skype always says I am online to my colleagues even if I’m not actually in the app. This makes no sense.

Horrible New UI  D. Coughlin  1 star

I do not understand how taking an easy to use, intuitive yet powerful interface and converting it into a hot mess of jumbled and disjointed screens, jettisoning key features and requiring many more steps to accomplish tasks is an improvement. The ONLY thing that keeps me from deleting this app and never using Skype again is that their competition cannot (yet) match Skype's overall video and audio quality. I'll be the first to switch to another service if the developers don't admit this social experiment a failure and go back to having tools help do work rather than creating more work.

Not working anymore!!!  Pendex69  1 star

I am unable to make calls now. I uninstalled and installed the app again to see if issue becomes resolved but not I cannot even log in. I pay Skype $70 every 3 months for a long distance flat rate subscription and it is totally unfair that they do this. I am very dissatisfied looking for other options similar to Skype but that actually work

fix skype pls

It’s not working  fix skype pls  1 star

I love Skype but it currently won’t let me connect. I restarted my phone and uninstalled and reinstalled it and now it won’t even let me log in. My brother has android and it’s not working for him either so pls fix it.


A little fed up  StarWars53  2 star

The app is great. However it won’t let me sign in now. It stays in a loading screen, and when it does load it goes to a blue screen and I can’t seem to fix it. It was great when I could use it. Not worth getting


Laggy  Kayheyday  4 star

It’s not letting people call for some reason (at the moment at least)


App is “connecting endlessly”  happy_symptom  2 star

Also: Profile photo changes don’t sync from Mac to iPhone, I also lost my entire message history for all people when Skype was “overhauled” (years of convos), and now I cant see my replies on phone (and its connecting forever). All I see is the person's responses in the thread. A pretty, brightly colored mess for me currently.


Won’t connect  Novastella1212  1 star

@SkypeSupport Skype for my iPhone 7 Plus isn’t allowing me to log in. I have the latest version of skype and phone is up to date.


Poor Calling Experience  BindingEnergy  1 star

I pay to use Skype for calling, and my business uses Skype exclusively for all communication, but when I use Skype on my phone the calling features are completely useless, since I cannot select my audio device. Many of the changes are improvements, but Skype is a voice platform and the development focus should focus on making this part of the experience good.

Ever change

Current update ios  Ever change  3 star

Video calls still have issues with connecting with family over seas, from USA. Discovered “message fail to send” on anything i post in chat with the text emoticon 0—0. Still annoying that last year they changed the ~ use to bolding text if 2 if them in a post.


Crashing  HunterReb  1 star

Even after the update it’s still not working for me. Done uninstalled it plenty of times and reinstalled it and still getting the same results. Can y’all please fix this issue as I have a IPhone 7plus. Been using Skype for years until this problem started when the update for the iPhone8 came out as much as I love Skype it’s really been ticking me off when the crashing.


👎🏽  Hayk0990  1 star

The worst skype update. I can’t really use skype on my phone. Many things have changed. Bring back the old skype, or change this one completely please! Asap!


Bad reviews from my side for iOS version  calvinbaba  1 star

All persons i know using skype on iphones most of them are disappointed me my brother and other friends all facing issues call drop and not connected to call poor quality but on android phone its working well because im using it on android now on iphone im not using


Great !  SherifaElkayaty  5 star

It is the most relabel application where I live !!! Easy to use too


What a mess!  amosdad  2 star

Completely horrible interface. I want to GIVE Skype money to make calls to phones and I can’t seem to find a way to dial from the contact address book of iPhone. They “tried” to make a social app and made it even worse. I wrote this review 2 months ago but did not hit send button thinking this sort of design that makes it harder to give money to Microsoft would obviously be fixed. As of today, nothing.


Why all the changes?  Tinkrbeltiff  1 star

I feel like every time I open up my Skype app something has changed. Seriously, why "fix" something when it wasn't broken in the first place? Stop changing random things just to be more "updated", it's beyond annoying.


Can’t take off Hold  Scoffeeakc  2 star

Everything is perfect!! 5 stars for that, but when my call gets put on hold, there is no button or swipe to take the call off hold.. please fix this.


These things need to change.  boihuu18  1 star

I am an avid user of Skype, but things such as when one person gets off the screen to check something then gets back on the screen the person is no longer visible and majority of the time I can’t press the camera button to fix it because it is glitched and therefore disabled. My girlfriend sometimes does things such as make faces and things of that nature and I can’t even see her half the time so she thinks I’m ignoring her but the truth behind that is the app is so broken. Please help with these issues. One other thing is that when it says reconnecting it takes extremely long to do so even if I’m using WiFi and then the message stays on the screen and won’t go away. Please Skype can we get these issues fixed? Thanks.
