The Skype you know and love has an all-new design, optimized to help you stay connected with the people you care about most. What can I do with Skype? • Communicate easily with the people in your life through free Skype-to-Skype video/audio calls, personalized messaging, and low-rate calling to mobiles and landlines around the world. • Message: send photos, videos, voice messages, emoticons, Mojis, react to messages, and more. • Groups: Free group video and audio calling for up to 25 participants, group chat with up to 300 people, plan or play with bots, add-ins, and personalized features 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. Note: Skype-to-Skype calls and messages are always free when used on an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection. Otherwise, operator data charges may apply. System requirements: iOS 10.0 or above.



  • Skype new version

    By oaltomare
    I prefer the older version. How do I get back to that?
  • Long Distance Relationship

    Thank you Skype for providing a reliable source for my partner to talk with clear communication!
  • Lags a lot

    By fhsianbavbsjskakmabajalaonehd
    Takes a while to connect to internet, and sometimes it doesn’t at all. Unreliable
  • Not getting any notification about missed calls

    By nutella_98
    Update Today I have missed another important call and there was absolutely no any kind of notification that I have received a call. No app badge, no alert, no history, even though they are all enabled. That’s it. I am rating this app and its incompetent Microsoft team an absolute zero. Unfortunately, there is no “absolute zero”. Assume you got one from me. —- I have all notification types enabled (app badge icon, alerts, show on lick screen, show in history, etc), and per title, I am not getting any notifications for missed calls. Eg, I turn wi-fi off for a few hours. Someone calls me (not via Skype phone just via regular Skype call). When I turn my wi-fi back on and wait, not getting any notification neither via app badge icon, lock screen, or in history, that someone has called me. The only way to know is if I open Skype and then I can see I have “missed calls”. Been using Skype on a daily basis in the past month and never received notifications for any of my missed calls. iPad 6 / iOS 11.4
  • The chat

    By Animated chats
    They have chats inside of it.
  • Please let us install the older version before this update

    By Ice boo
    For everyone who doesn’t like the iPhone version, don’t download this. The older version looked a lot nicer on the iPad. Don’t know why all the groups I had deleted showed up after installing this. Please let us install the older version. I do not like how this new update look. If I wanted this look, I would be using skype on my iPhone. Very disappointed in this new update. I guess my friends and I will be using discord instead.
  • Latest update is beyond awful

    By plzfixui
    I was holding out, but I think it's finally time to move on to a different IM app now that you guys have destroyed Skype beyond all recognition -- first the desktop app, then the Android app, and now the iPad app. Unbelievable. You people must have the worst UX team on the planet. Enter key now inserts a new line instead of sending. Emojis don't animate or animate sporadically. Emojis look flat and horrible. The Recents tab is gone now, so now I have to see ALL my contacts. I can no longer "hide" contacts. Cortana garbage was somehow added to my contacts, and there seems to be no way to remove it directly from the app. Most media links don't get expanded with a preview anymore. I could go on, but what's the point... total disaster. This is literally the *FIRST* time I have ever bothered to leave a negative review for an app. That's how horrible this is. This is no ordinary regression. This feels like a totally different app that's been taken 1000 steps back to pre-alpha stage. What a shame.
  • Wow

    Ive been using skype for and year and its just sooooooooo good
  • Skype upgrade 07/14 is horrendous - what the heck

    By LV Brit
    Microsoft could not have done any worse with this upgrade. Terrible to use - status of users not known (I want to know if they are online and not just ‘active’). They have added unknown bot, chat history has blocked invitations and lots of useless information. Trying to sign out is difficult. Time to find different software.
  • Can't Go Offline

    By Tlessard3
    Before this last update, you could go offline. Now, you're ALWAYS online. Also, this new version FORCES 'bots into your contact list with no option to remove them. I also got an UNSOLICITED message from a "tips and tricks" 'bot, which I assumed was spam, so I reported it. This update is pretty, but EXTREMELY impractical, for the power user. I may have to move on.
