How can I view my call history?

You can view a history of all the instant messages and files you’ve sent and received and details of any calls, text messages and voice messages that you have made/received over Skype.

The Recent tab shows all of your most recent conversations and calls. To view a specific type of history – for example, just your text message history or just voice message – click View and then select from the menu what you want to look at.

This article gives more information about how to find your conversation history and what else you can do with it.

You can also view a history of paid-for calls you’ve made and text messages you’ve sent in your account. Just sign in to your account and click Usage (you can also click the number of minutes remaining in your subscription listed to the left). 

This displays your paid-for call and text message history by month, along with the cost of each. Where a call is covered by a subscription, the cost is shown as zero.

You can scroll back and forward through the months using the links at the top.

Use the drop-down list at the bottom left of the screen to choose how many items you’d like on each page.

You can also filter your history to show only calls, or only text messages: from the Show Only drop-down list, just select Call or SMS
