Make sharing ideas easy

Skype has been entirely rebuilt for your iPhone. We’ve made it easier to just swipe between Recent, Favourites and People, to see what your friends are up to.

Start a group chat

Got a good idea? Share it. Group chat is ideal for swapping thoughts. That’s why we’ve made finding and adding people to a group chat even easier.

Go face to face

When you’ve got something you can’t keep to yourself, nothing beats talking face to face. With video calling you’ll see them as soon as they answer; no build up or drum roll, you’re just there, right in the action.

Give them your best shot

Want to send a photo? Easy. There’s no delay. Once you’ve selected a photo, it appears in the chat, in an instant. Magic.

Send ’you’ in a video message

Record and share the interesting, crazy, inspirational, you-need-to-see-this bits of your day with friends on Skype — even when they’re not around.
