If you want to install and use the Skype for iPhone app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Skype for iPhone in the search bar and press Search. Click on Skype for iPhone application icon. A window of Skype for iPhone on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • used to be good but...

    i’ve used skype on and off for a few years. i think of skype as “that video call app” because originally it was just to call people as either a video call, audio call, and “chat”(because nobody really uses it) app. i feel like with all these new updates skype is using up valuable space both on said persons phone which instead they could be using on improving the quality of the apps features. not making new features and icons and lists and tips that nobody is going to use. second, regarding (video)calls, whenever i call someone skype has a tendency to randomly turn off and the screen goes completely black. this only happens when i use skype. i would like this to be fixed because it’s really bothersome and pisses me off all the time. on that note whenever i (video)call someone i always(and i mean ALWAYS)have to turn on the video or sometimes both the video and speaker even though it’s a video call and should automatically do that because it’s a video call. anyways i think originally this was a great app because it was so simple and easy to use, but now there is so much going on the real point isn’t there anymore and is constantly being altered. please fix the glitches i addresses in this and thanks.
  • Focus on Call Quality PLEASE

    By Luna Lunita Lunera
    This is why we use the app — to make video calls or phone calls to loved ones. Connections are inconsistent, depending upon where one or both parties are situated in their respective locations. With cellular coverage and WiFi (most times, combined) this shouldn’t even be an issue. There should never be dropped calls nor lagging connections. I don’t want to constantly scroll through screens; asking for money, taking 10 random pictures of the app screen nor use emoticons while I’m talking with my loved one. Please remove those options or at the very least, make it difficult/impossible to do so while simply talking to the other person. Not everyone wants to use video or speakerphone all the time; some of us prefer the old fashioned way of talking to someone on the phone. It’s inconvenient to have to stop mid-conversation all the time to see what my ear is up to, seeing what random page I’m scrolling through unintentionally. These are things we care about; connecting with those we love. Focus on those things; the quality of this particular aspect - the central aspect - of your service. Cool that other things are offered but please make those secondary things inactive while we’re on a call.
  • Not bad, but...

    Definitely an overall good calling app. I’ve used things like FaceTime and Snapchat to make video calls before, but they just don’t work as well. Skype usually seems to load no matter what, unless the connection is extremely poor which isn’t the fault of Skype. One of the main drawbacks is all the buttons littering the screen. Like many other reviewers have stated, things are a bit over crowded, especially for a phone app. My screen is small enough as it is and I want to see the person I’m talking to. That’s the point of the video call. My biggest gripe here is the poor internet connection notification box. Can we please move the poor internet connection notification box? It pops up right in the center of the screen! Thanks for telling me I have a poor connection, but I don’t understand why something can’t pop up in the corner. This notification blocks my whole entire screen so I can’t see who I’m talking to. This just makes me want to use an app that doesn’t tell me about the strength of my internet connection (because I don’t care about that information anyways). It would definitely be a five star app if these few problems could get addressed.
  • Suggestions are annoying and crashes often

    I’ve used Skype for 2-3 years now and it wasn’t really that bad. I used it everyday to call and text my friends. But there’s a slight problem. There are always these suggestions I can use if I send a message or someone sends me a message. I press the button that these aren’t useful, but they keep coming back! I dislike the suggestions because I accidentally keep pressing it and it immediately sends and makes my friend confused. Also, whenever I call someone, it won’t even let me turn off my phone! It is so annoying because when I turn off my phone so save battery while calling, it immediately hangs up. Whenever I call on the computer and go on another tab at the same time (like playing a game), it affects my game. It freezes my game all the time. Also, my Skype just crashes when I call on the computer. It immediately closes the tab and hangs up. It gets me and my friend really irritated. I love this app but it just has a few problems that needs to be fixed

    I’ve used this app for years around the world being in the military and it has always taken care of me. The ability to get a U.S. number has provided endless flexibility for two-way communication. In addition, being able to call landlines, cellphones, and having text capabilities from anywhere in the world has been invaluable. Although, there are many other apps on the market with similar capabilities, Skype has always been one that I have kept installed for piece of mind.
