What is Skype Premium?

Skype Premium is a great way to enjoy all the features Skype has to offer. It lets you take advantage of group video calling (currently available on Windows desktop and Mac), so that you can call and see several members of your family at once, or celebrate New Year with your friends from different time zones. You can also enjoy unlimited* calling to mobiles and landlines in a country of your choice**, so you can talk for as long as you like, as often as you like, without worrying about time or cost.

Try out our day passes, they’re great for getting in touch with your loved ones on special events, or choose a full month subscription. It’s up to you!

Be aware that unlimited calls to mobiles and landlines are not available when you’re trying Skype Premium for a day.

To check the cost of Skype Premium, simply click Get a Premium account. Then choose a country you want (if you’d like to enjoy unlimited calls to mobiles and landlines), or select No thanks, I want to proceed without unlimited calling, and click Select and continue.

After you sign in to your Skype account, the purchase details will be displayed.
