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.

    When using dialpad you have to select which country you are dialling. When you copy and paste the number it duplicate the country code.

  • Using v8.1.3 on iPhone 7 running iOS 11.2.2 ...

    By P Sorich
    This version runs incredibly precise and seamlessly on my iPhone 7, without ANY skips or long pauses or freeze-ups. I’ll put up with the smaller Skype screen on my iPhone 7 from now on, rather than the piss-poor performance that I’ve been receiving when I use Skype on my huge MacBook Pro laptop; skips, long pause gaps and freezes up.
  • Horrible

    By ButterflyrainPeru
    The latest version ok Skype is plain horrible. It's almost like, "is this even Skype!?" Please restore the previous version. Don't waste your time with this crappy version. HATE it!!! In addition, since it is now more like a social media platform rather than its original intention, my contacts are now given out to others as "you may also know ___" like on Facebook. I can no longer use Skype because of this as my counseling clients no longer have confidentiality. I'm closing down Skype after happily using it daily for a decade. So sad that Skype changed. If there's any hope at all - PLEASE go back to your good old tried and true version.
  • Continue listening to user feedback

    By Apple user 077921
    LATE NOTIFICATIONS AND MESSAGES! Messages not sent when you immediately go out of the app. STATUS REVERTS TO ACTIVE! Why does the recent version reverts the status back to active after setting it to invisible? Here's some more UI improvements that you need to consider: 1) Add ability to add/remove contacts to Lists just like on Skype desktop app. This is the only way you can organize your contacts. And groups does not solve this since you don't necessarily want to create a group chat if you just want to organize your contacts. 2) The video call screen is a mess now. Before it was very simple where you can see your video on small window above the person you are calling and just a simple click switches them. You can also see the exact video of you that the other line will see but now you just crop and show whatever fits on the new layout of the screen. This is frustration because you can't really see the exact video the other line will see. 3) Hide the profile photo on the left side when in single person chat and show it only on group chats. There is no sense on showing it on single chats since the name is already always shown in the app's header. 4) No ability to delete shared images during a call 5) Add encrypted chats, voice calls and video calls. ----- I'll do more testing. I really hope someone is going to read this feedback and pass it on the Skype team.

    This app deserves zero stars! I am on the latest iOS version but the app keeps crashing and randomly taking me out of the app! This app is clearly not compatible with the new iOS version!
