Review Skype

Alexander Vorobyev
User-friendly and neat interface, lots of features, functions quickly, massive number of users, functions quickly, convenient interface, modern design
No significant drawbacks, is lagging on some devices
Skype is the world’s most popular VoIP service that’s used both for calling and chatting. This official Skype client app for Android features the same functionality as its PC counterpart and lets you chat and talk with your friends, colleagues, and family completely for free wherever you are in the world in case you have a stable Internet connection.
Skype is an awesome application that uses an Internet connection—whether 3G, Wi-Fi, or ADSL—to let you make free calls to users from all over the world completely for free. Also, it offers you a possibility to call landlines and mobile phones worldwide at reduced prices.
The application has an intuitive interface that is perfectly designed to make sure that you don’t get lost in case you’re just about to find out what this great app is like for the first time. Launch it, find your friends, and chat with them or call them completely for free.
Skype is a great and really useful application for Android that lets you always stay in touch with your friends, family, and colleagues irrespective of where you are. The main thing is that you have a stable Internet connection. The application features no significant drawbacks.

My Coby MID8042 doesnt have GooglePlay Services. Do you have an alternative way to instal SKYPE? Thanks
Brandon Girod
Try using an alternate app store to download it. 
want to download whatssap my phone os samsung galaxy t 3
Brandon Girod
You should be able to download it via our installation options. 
I D/L SKYPE to my galaxy S5 but I cannot sign in with my user name.  It will only allow me to SET UP NEW ACCOUNT.
Brandon Girod
There is a really small login text below the sign up box. 
it seems doesn't work with samsung core
Não consigo instalar skype no meu Asus zenfone 5 porque código de erro -24 alguém pode me ajudar?
Iv got xperia mini pro sk17i, does anyone know how to download skype app directly onto SD card? As I haven't got much space on phone?

Very exellent
Iv got a Alcatel pop 7 and I can't find video calling on Skype. Does anyone know if I'm doing something wrong or whether its not compatable?
Tariq Abdulla
Not sure about your specific device, but it looks like it should be able to support it. The skype interface is a bit of a jumble in my opinion - you might need to go to People, tap on one of your contacts, and see if you have a video call option, as well as a voice call option?
I have a moto e with no front camera does Skype come with a way I can video chat with someone where we can both see each other
Tariq Abdulla
I'm afraid this is not physically possible, unless you use a mirror
Parth Shah
I am using Asus Zenfone 5. I have installed latest version of skype "" and my android version is 4.4.2 . When a video call gets connected, the camera gets stopped and the person who is at other end can't be able to watch video. How to fix this issue?
Tariq Abdulla
You may see an icon to your own camera. Have a look for this when you are in a call. Let me know if that works
muhammadsardarzadran26 Jun 2015, at 13:40
while skyping from my moto g (first generation), can i switch to some other camera from the main camera? like from the man camera to camera360? or beauty plus?
Tariq Abdulla
Not really, the Skype app has it's own camera software for doing video calls. 
I have a Galaxy s3 mini phone, device name SM-G730W8.  I cannot hear the person calling me...sound is extremely low.  No one can help me.  I skype my family in hong kong every day and have to use my computer.  I want to Skype on my phone.  Don't kniow where the audio settings are.  I am a senior and not tech savey.  PLEASE tell me what to do.  My name is Louise from Thunder Bay Ontario Canada
Vlad Popa
Skype does not have any dedicated audio settings. Instead you have to use your device's physical volume rocker buttons. These are usually found on the side of your phone and should be a pair of buttons, possibly with a + and - sign on them. Make a Skype call and wait for the person to pick up then press the buttons and see how they alter your volume.
Please let me know if you require more assistance.
Please my skype is not working and i don't know why?
How do you get Skype to register the camera to make vid calls?
Vlad Popa
The app should automatically detect your camera, provided you have one. Simply tap the video call button and the call should start, or if you are already in the call the video icon should be displayed.
If you require more assistance, please let me know what device model and OS version you are using so I can provide accurate information.
My samsung doesn't even let me sign in..

it's a galaxy ace 3 
 the app downloads just fine, I just can't sign in..
Vlad Popa
What happens when you tap on the app's icon and attempt to log in? Does it remain in loading, does it crash? Is any error message displayed? Also, make sure you are using a stable internet connection, preferably WiFi.
My camera is not showing up in Skype.  I have a Motorola X phone.  I can see othes but they can't see me.

Why is that my skype stopped working in my asus eepad
Vlad Popa
It's possible that this issue may arise at times. Does the app work properly after relaunching it?
Vlad Popa
To my knowledge Skype mobile does not allow you to delete your chat history. This can be done on the PC version though.
does skype work on galaxy light
Where is the downloaing option we have 2 download skype
Vlad Popa
In order to download the app simply click the "Free Version" link found above the review. It will direct you to the appropriate Google Play page. Make sure you are logged in with the same Google account on both your PC and your Android device before clicking the "Install" button and select the device from the pop-up menu. If there are any compatibility issues then Google play will point them out.
Alternatively you can scan or input the QR code found above the review into your Android device and it will direct you to the download page.
In the future, please make sure to mention your device model and OS version when requesting assistance.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with.
I use skype apk in my sony xperia z. I use skype for free video and audio call so it's a nice app 
I recently bought a REDMI Note and installed SKYPE successfully. However, the receiving end can not see the video. The sound is ok and they can only see a "green" box. The front and rear cameras are working fine as tested.  Can someone shed some light on a fix?

Also when I am able to finally log in (with the long code) it will not let me see anything but my profile page. Please help, I have used this before on this phone with no issues. All of a sudden I can't do anything. Using LG G2 for Sprint...
Vlad Popa
I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I have no knowledge of this issue occurring, it may be a compatibility issue with your specific device. What i advise is this:
1. Ensure that the latest Android updates available have been applied to your device.
2. Clear the app's data and afterwards uninstall it.
3. Reboot your device.
4. Reinstall the app from the Playstore.
If this does not resolve the issue, i advise contacting Customer Service by following the steps found on this page: support.skype.com/en/faq/...
Please let me know if you require more assistance.

samsung galxy note mobile can I download skype for desktop??
Vlad Popa
For the Note devices you need the Android version. The link found above the review will allow you to download that version. The desktop version is only for PCs and Laptops.

xperia user30 Nov 2014, at 09:59Sony Xperia T2 Ultra
Video call is disable on xperia t2 ultra. How can i enable it?
Vlad Popa
Video calls should be available as soon as installation and sign-in is complete, as long as they are compatible with your device. The video call button should be available once you tapped on a contact and should be in the lower left corner of the screen, while the normal call button is in the lower right. Do the buttons appear? Do they have functionality on your device?
Tried skype v5.0.0.0 on oppo find7 android 4.3.On 3G and WiFi I can connect but voice does not work other end cannot hear me even with headphone .which work desktop version works
Vlad Popa
Is that the latest version of Skype available for  your device? The version varies based on what device you install Skype on. If you installed from Google Play and/or updated then it should be the latest version.
Please try the following: uninstall Skype on the device that has the issue, restart your device and then reinstall Skype from the Google Play links provided above. Once the app is launched use the Echo Test service to test your microphone. This means making a call to the Echo Test contact that is always in your contact list and following the step by step instructions. If you have successfully heard your voice through Echo Test then attempt to make a call to a real person.
Please let me know if this fixes the issue or if you require more assistance.

I'm having trouble downloading Skype for Android, on a galaxy S4 mini, says no compatible device found ??? It's running Android 4.2.2, also read Skype is compatible with Cortex A7 + A9 CPU's does it support Dual-core 1.7 GHz Krait 300 ???, I'm in Cyprus on Cytanet,no problems with Skype on Windows comps.
Vlad Popa
When accessing the Google Play page are you logged in with the same Google account on your device and your S4? Skype should be compatible with almost all devices. Make sure that your device is recognized by clicking the install link on the Google Play page, it should open a pop-up window where you can select from available device and it should show your S4 mini, saying below it if it is compatible or not.
I'm fairly tech savvy and I can't get this to work on my desktop or my Samsung. This sucks. 
Vlad Popa
I am sure we can solve this issue. Firstly please let me know what device you are using and what exactly occurs when attempting to download and install it on your mobile device.
As for the desktop version. It is simply a matter of accessing www.skype.com/en/...... downloading it and installing to your desktop.
Of course, you will need an account in order to use it, but the free ones are a simple step-by-step creation away.
Hope this helps, let me know if you require more help, and what exactly is the issue that occurs when attempting to install it.

Are you using the latest version of the app? If so, please let me know exactly what do you mean by "It doesn't work". Are the messages not delivered? Do you get an error?

Hi, I'll be having an interview in a few days time and i want to use my Note 3 for it. I have downloaded skype 4.7 (i believe its the latest one). And its not giving me an option to do a video call. Why is that? The only setting for "video" i could find is for the image/video quality. Can you please help me out? P.S i havent downloaded kitkat yet. Thanks a bunch!
Alexander Vorobyev
Hey! The first thing you need to do for sure is updating your OS to the newest version and reinstalling the app if needed. If that doesn't work, use this instruction (https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA11019/making-a-video-call-with-skype-3-2-for-android-phones). Let me know if you have any other questions or further troubles.
