Learn the essentials
Our how-to videos will teach you everything you need to know to get started with Skype.
With Skype, it’s easy to call people in other countries. You can make a call:
Skype-to-Skype calls are free. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, or where the person you’re calling is. It doesn’t even matter if you’re using Skype on a computer, a mobile* or your TV. As long as you’re both using Skype, the call is completely free.
You can make Skype-to-Skype calls using video or just voice – it’s up to you. Make a voice call with up to 25 people at once and that’s free too (as long as everyone’s on Skype). If you want to have a video call with more than two people, that's free too.
* WiFi connection or mobile data plan required.
You can call someone on their mobile or landline from Skype. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world: if you’re signed in to Skype, you can call anyone, anywhere at low per minute rates. The price you pay depends on the country you’re calling to, not the country you’re calling from.
If you’re away from your computer, you can make low-cost international calls to friends and family from your mobile or any landline. You just need to add your friends as Skype To Go™ contacts, and we’ll give you a special Skype To Go number for each of them. Then simply dial these numbers to call your friends from any phone.
