Can I send a contact’s details to another contact in Skype for Linux?

This article is also available for:

You can send a contact’s details to one or more people in your contact list. The person receiving the contact details can then add that contact to their contact list.

To send a contact’s details to another contact:

  1. In the contact list, click the contact you wish to send contacts to.
  2. Click 

  3. If you change your mind and want to remove a contact from the list of contacts to send, click on the name to select it and then click << Do not send.
  4. Click Send.

The contact will now appear as a button in the chat window of the contact you sent it to. They can click on the button, and it will open a contact request for them.
