How do I send a file in Skype for Windows Phone?

With Skype for Windows Phone, you can send and receive pictures only, other types of files are currently not supported.

  1. Select the contact you’d like to send a picture to.
  2. Tap the plus icon.
  3. Choose Share Photo.
  4. Tap the photo you wish to send; it will send automatically. You can also take a new photo, if you wish.

Tap the picture so it opens in Full-screen view. From the more menu (three dots) in the right-hand corner, tap Save photo. The picture is now saved on your device.
