Skype for iPhone for iOS is the latest version of the popular internet software that has been redesigned to offer a ton of new features and ways to stay connected with your loved ones. With this app, you can send messages, make voice and video calls, share photos and videos, and much more.

Messaging made awesome

Skype for iPhone for iOS offers more than just text messaging. You can now send photos, videos, voice messages, emoticons, Mojis and more. You can also respond to any message from your contacts with reactions. This feature makes it easier to express yourself in conversations.

Great for groups

The app allows you to add your favorite people and start chatting in groups. You can use groups to plan together or play together or just stay in touch with friends or family members who are far away from you.

Call everyone - Skype, mobiles and landlines

With Skype for iPhone for iOS, you can make free video and voice calls that make it easier to stay connected with friends and family members who are far away from you. The app also offers low calling rates to mobiles and landlines worldwide with Skype.

Never miss a moment with quick capture

The quick capture feature allows you to quickly swipe through photos or videos on your phone's camera roll/photo gallery without leaving the app. You can then add emoticons, stickers or annotations before sharing them with others.

Share Highlights

Keep others updated about what's happening in your life by sharing highlights from your day on Skype. Your followers will be able to react using awesome emoticons or send private messages about that highlight within 7 days before they disappear.

Free when used on an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection

Skype-to-Skype calls are always free when used on an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection; otherwise operator data charges may apply.

Upgrading may result in deletion of content from older conversations

It is important to note that 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.

In conclusion, Skype for iPhone for iOS is a must-have app for anyone who wants to stay connected with their loved ones. With its new features and capabilities, it offers a seamless experience that makes it easier than ever before to communicate with others.

With Skype for iOS, you can make free worldwide calls, chat with friends, and even play games via chatbots.


Free video and voice calls: Skype-to-Skype calls are free, no matter where in the world the participants are located. Calling from the Skype app to a mobile number or landline, however, requires purchasing Skype Credits or a monthly subscription plan. Skype can handle group calls, but the number of video streams will vary, depending on your device and other factors.

Chat with contacts: In addition to handling calls, Skype lets you chat with contacts. You can send emojis and GIFs, exchange files, and snap and share photos.

Add contacts: While it's not a completely intuitive process, you can import contacts from your address book or add them manually. You can also add chatbots to play games, make travel plans, find movie times, and more.

Good call quality: While Skype has in the past been dinged for its call quality, the quality of our voice and video calls over a mobile network and several Wi-Fi networks was consistently fine, with no lag or dropped calls.

Simple interface: Skype's interface is easy to navigate, and you can initiate calls and text messages with a few taps. You also easily switch between front- and back-facing cameras during a call.


Not for teamwork: The consumer version lacks collaborative tools, such as screen sharing. If you want to collaborate with colleagues, you need Skype for Business, which starts at $5 per month per user.

No Facebook sign-in: Unlike the desktop and Web versions, the Skype for iOS app won't let you sign in via Facebook. Instead, you need to use your Skype name or your Microsoft account.

Bottom Line

While the video- and voice-calling field has become more crowded since Skype debuted in 2003, the iOS version of the long-running messaging app has kept pace, offering a solid way to make worldwide calls with an easy-to-use interface.
