    If you're signed in to Skype, you can receive calls. You'll see an incoming call notification screen, select the call Audio call button button to answer the call as an audio call, or select the video Video call button button to answer with video. For incoming video calls, you can select to answer it as a video call or audio only. If you don't want to answer it, select the end call End call button button to decline. If you're offline and you have Voice Messaging activated, the caller will be able to leave a message, or you can set up call forwarding to another number.
