What accessories can I use with Skype and where can I get them?

To make a call with Skype you need speakers and a microphone, and to make a video call you need a webcam. If you don’t have any of these, you can still use other Skype features such as sending and receiving instant messages.

Many computers have built-in speakers and microphones, but you will get much better audio quality if you buy a headset or handset. Buy Skype Certified accessories that are guaranteed to work seamlessly with Skype from the Skype shop.

Remember that you'll be buying accessories from our third party merchants and not directly from Skype. The merchants we work with have excellent reputations in selling consumer electronics and provide broad coverage of Skype Certified accessories.
