    What are guest accounts in Skype conversations?

    Back to search results

    A guest account is a feature in Skype allowing you to have conversations with friends regardless of whether they are on Skype or not. A Skype guest account is a temporary account, good for 24 hours, and specific to the one conversation they've been invited to. You cannot add them as a contact or send them a one on one message, as they won't get delivered.  Learn more about trying Skype without an account.
