It's easy to find your friends who are using Skype and add them to your contacts. When you’ve added your friends, you can call, video call and instant message them on Skype, for free.
You can also add your friends who are not using Skype to your Skype contact list, and call them on their mobile or landline via Skype. You’ll only need a little Skype Credit or a subscription to call mobiles and landlines.
It’s easy to add a Skype contact in Skype for Android just like it is on your computer.
The person is added to your contact list, but will appear offline until they accept your request. After they’ve accepted your request, you can see when they’re online and make free voice and video calls with them.
If you don’t want to add people individually, you can automatically add people in your Android address book who are also on Skype. Tap the menu button, go to your profile, scroll to the bottom of your profile page, and then tap Settings. In your settings, tap the Automatically add friends option under Contacts, then tap the Use my address book option.
You can add a mobile or landline number to your Skype contact list, so you can reach your friends even when they’re not on Skype:
