How do I answer a call?

When someone calls you, a call alert window appears on your screen.

The alert window with incoming call options - Answer, Answer with video, Decline - displayed.

There are three options on the call alert window.

Click... To...
Answer answer the call (voice only, no video)
Answer with video answer the call with video
Decline reject the call

You can also set up call forwarding to automatically forward calls to a mobile or landline, or even another Skype Name. You’ll need a little Skype Credit or a subscription to forward calls to mobiles and landlines.
