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.



  • Crashing on iOS 11

    App is crashing on iPhone 8
  • Not a big fan of the new look...

    The new interface is way too big (takes up too much space) and really feels like it's trying to "catch up" with other apps that are copying each other rather than staying its own thing and remaining friendly to those who stay with the app. If people want to use Snapchat or Instagram or any social media app, THE APP EXISTS. Don't copy it, stay your own thing. My least favorite part is that it’s called “the same Skype you know and love” when the only thing that’s the same from before is the fact that it’s used for messaging and calling. -I don't mind the colors and small changes to the animations like "… is typing" and whatnot, but I would greatly appreciate it if the old interface returned. This "brand new" is unnecessary. -I don't mind a few little changes, but keep the interface somewhat similar, please? I liked the tabs at the bottom (where everything could be switched to easily), the chats that took up much less room; I appreciated being able to read multiple messages in a group chat rather than constantly having the scroll through the messages of massive text. I don't have zoom enabled on my phone, but this would be a nightmare if I did. -At least offer some customizability and the options to opt out of whatever new features are added? -Biggest problems are probably the very unnecessary extra tabs in the chats. There's no use for it. I liked being able to swipe out of the chats instead of having to push a button. I also appreciated swiping right to see the times when messages were sent rather than having the stamps always there above the messages, taking up more space. -Another big problem, for me, came up. I use asterisks and whatnot a lot. What happened to the /wikimarkup ? If you want to implement bold/italics/strike through/underline, do it how an app like telegram does: you highlight the word and a menu, like the cut/copy/paste menu (for me on iOS), comes up that allows you to change the word how you'd like. Greatly appreciated if this were fixed. I appreciated the Instant Messaging app, not another copy of Snapchat. Let's not communicate through photos. Let's chat, whether it be over text, over an audio call, or over a video call, let's not make stories and "highlights" of what we're doing. Keep that for other apps. The file sharing on iTunes and message syncing is still an ongoing issue.
