What happens when someone calls me on Skype while I’m on another call?

You'll see an incoming call notification screen, tap or click the call button  to answer the new call, the call you're already on will be put on hold. If you don't want to answer it, tap the end call button  to decline. If you're offline and you have Voice Messaging activated, the caller will be able to leave you a message, or you can set up call forwarding to forward incoming calls to another number. 

  1. Select Answer from the incoming call window. The call you're already on will be put on hold. 
  2. Select the show contacts button  in the call bar. 
  3. The call that is on hold will be highlighted in your contact list, drag and drop the call you're in to add the new caller to your existing call. 

You'll see an incoming call notification screen, click the + add incoming call button
