What is SkypeMe!® mode?

SkypeMe! is no longer supported in Skype for Windows, though it is still accessible in Skype for Mac 2.8 and earlier.

SkypeMe! mode lets everyone else on Skype know that you are available and interested in chatting. This includes people who you don't know, or you have not shared contact requests with. SkypeMe! mode temporarily disables your privacy settings and allows anyone to contact you, whether you've OK'd them or not. Your privacy settings are restored as soon as you leave SkypeMe! mode.  

To change your status to or from SkypeMe! mode on earlier versions of Skype for Mac OS X, go to Account > Change Status and then click SkypeMe!
