Bringing Skype and Microsoft accounts together

We are excited to share that we’re bringing the benefits of Microsoft accounts to everyone who uses Skype. You will be able to use your Skype Name to sign into other Microsoft apps and services like Xbox, Office and OneDrive. 

What does that mean for me?

You can use your Skype name to sign into all Microsoft services.
You will have a single password to sign into all your Microsoft services.
You will have a more secure account.

Here's how things have changed:

  • Your Skype name will be updated to a Microsoft account. If you already have a Microsoft account, you will be able to update your Skype name to your existing account.
  • Recovering your password is managed in one place.
  • When you update accounts, you will have a single password.
