There are a few different ways you can find your friends and add them in Skype.
Add friends automatically
If you’re using Skype on a mobile and you've agreed to share your address book, you can automatically add people from your phone’s address book to Skype. Select the automatically add friends option in your Skype app’s settings. Learn more about adding friends automatically.
Use a share link
You can create and share conversations with people even if they’re not a contact in Skype. When you set up a group conversation, you get a share link which you can copy or email to anyone. That way, if they’re on Skype you can add them when they join your conversation. Learn more about using share links.
The best way to search for people is by using their Skype Name (you can ask your friends for theirs), email address or phone number.
If you search using a real name and get multiple results, right click on one and select View Profile. All the details they've agreed to make public – like a photo, city, country or phone number – will help you know if that’s the right person.
Make it easier for your friends to find you
Adding a profile picture and a few other details about yourself makes it easier for your friends to find you on Skype. To update your profile, sign in to your account, scroll down to the bottom of the page and select Edit Profile, and then click Edit. Learn more about updating your profile.
