How do I use video upgrade (Windows Phone 8.1)?

With Skype for Windows Phone 8.1, you have the option to change a normal cellular call to a Skype call or Skype video call.

  1. If you've chosen a contact in your phone (who is also a Skype contact) and started to dial, you will see the option to change the call to a Skype call.
  2. Tap Skype.
  3. Your Windows Phone will then launch Skype and complete the call there.
