You can make a voice or video call to anyone on Skype, anywhere in the world, for free. Simply find your family, friends and colleagues who are using Skype and add them to your contact list. When you’ve added them, it’s easy to make a call. And now you can translate voice and video calls in 6 languages (for users on Windows 7 and above).
We've launched a new way to invite anyone to your call. You don't need to know their Skype name, and they don't even need to have a Skype account to enjoy free voice, video and instant message conversations with you. Learn more.
If your call is not answered, a window will pop up giving you the option to Send an IM, video message or retry your call.
Show or hide your Contacts or Recent lists. Check your call settings and connection speed, and adjust your microphone, speaker and webcam. Show the IM window so you can instant message the person you’re talking to. If you have a webcam, turn your video on and off. Mute your microphone so the other person can’t hear you. Send files, send contacts, share your screen, add people to the conversation and show the dial pad. End the call. Turn on/off Skype translator during your call.
