How to invite someone to Skype on mobile or tablet

Android, Android tablet, iPhone and iPad

If somebody is not already in your Skype Contacts or Calls list, follow the procedure below to send a link inviting them to connect with you.

(This procedure only has to be done once per contact)

Start Skype and tap Chats, (if it is not already selected).
Tap your profile picture.
Tap Skype profile.
Tap Share profile.
Tap More.
Send the invitation by selecting the Messages, WhatsApp or email application.

Once they’ve accepted, you can begin a Skype session.

The procedure is similar on a PC but there are less options for sending an invitation.
