    Can I use Apple Watch with Skype for iPhone?

    Back to search results

    Yes. We do support several features of the Apple Watch on Skype for iPhone, provided you have version 5.12.2 or above installed on your iPhone. (You can get the latest version here, if you need to.)

    Currently, we support the following features:

    • Quick reply to IM notifications using pre-defined short answers, a single emoticon, or voice-to-text feature
    • Answer incoming calls with hand-off to your iPhone
    • Check your unread messages and quick reply to them before moving to next one (shown below)
    • Send a new message to contacts in your Favorites (using the same methods as for quick reply)

    No emergency calls with Skype
    Skype is not a replacement for your telephone and can't be used for emergency calling
