What happens when someone calls me while I’m on a call in Skype for Mac OS X?

This article is also available for:

When someone calls and you’re already on a call, you will see the Incoming call window on your screen.

You can choose to decline, answer, or add the call to the existing call:

  • Click  to decline the call.
  • Click  to answer the call. This will put the current call on hold, and you will need to click  in the sidebar to switch between calls.

  • Click  to add the call to the current call. 

  If you have Skype Credit or a subscription, you can set up call forwarding to forward incoming calls to another number or Skype contact, or send the call to voicemail.
