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...

    By Yanuwaya
    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.
  • Not bad, but...

    By Cookeram
    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.
  • Works Well With 50-mps Wifi

    By walkingwhitecloud
    1) My experience with Skype over the last six years has been very good on both my laptop and my iPhone. I mostly use Skype for calling telephone numbers. Indeed, I have listened to lectures by dialing a phone number and experiencing excellent connections for hours at time. 2) With this app on my iPhone, the volume and clarity are particularly good with 50-mps wifi on my end. 3) Some other times, the volume of the other person has been a bit low, but I was still able to understand what the other person was saying. 4) The only funky thing that I have found with the app was when I wanted to add a secondary email address to my account. I read help first, but it seemed to be out of date since the navigation information in the help text didn’t correspond very well with the app. Eventually, I deduced that I couldn’t use the app to update my email addresses. I had to chat with support and login in to the Skype website to make the modifications. Most apps allow you to change email addresses within the apps.
  • Works well, some glitches

    By MT writer
    I live in a rural area where my cell phone mostly does not work, and the small local phone company here has expensive rates for unlimited long distance — even if I call the next town over. I use Skype (I have a Skype phone number), ooma, or WhatsApp, to telecommute and call out of my limited area. Skype is better than ooma because the quality is usually good and I can reliably make outgoing calls or connect to meetings such as via zoom or gotomeeting. Sometimes my internet connection strength seems to fluctuate though, and my Skype calls break up or echo and distort. My biggest criticism is that people I call may see a long 01 number with no name and without my correct location in their caller ID. Sometimes they do see my correct information but mostly not. With the current deluge of robo calls, this means often recipients are cautious about answering my calls. Overall as a telecommuter, I am happy to have Skype ... without it, connecting for meetings and doing business would be a lot more difficult and expensive.

  • Serviço de qualidade.

    By Rafael_nos5
    Uso o Skype no trabalho, faço chamadas para todo Brasil por um preço muito baixo, as chamadas são na maioria das vezes muito boas, não tenho do que reclamar. Parabéns.
  • Invasive spyware called Cortana

    By Tracy Greenwood
    This is the last straw. Microsoft has added spyware to a once useful app. There is no way to disable Cortana. This is much like the malware called Windows 10. Microsoft, stop angering your customers. You are making poor decisions knock it off. At least give us a way to disable the so-called feature.

    I am not interested. Take it off my phone.
  • Love Skype calls.

    By Terrici
    I have used Skype for many years, first for work, and then to keep up with my friends around the world. Hands down the most consistent (good) call quality even with low WiFi signal strength. The app just keeps getting better and easier to use.
  • Good but’s....

    By Nonnanorie
    I am mostly pleased. But now I am using my iPad to skype. But the picture is so small! It only gets 3x5. Why won’t it get the same size as my IPad screen?? I use the larger 7x8.
  • Update = log in error

    By Bird2bee
    After the latest update, my app won’t let me login. Says error , errrr annoying
  • Skype

    By melissa friend
    When it works, which is most of the time ,it is as good as a landline.Very occasionally you might be dropped.Occasionally the sound will fade or be intermittent but this happens rarely.I live in China and speak to people all over the world and overall I would rate SKYPE as excellent.I also subscribe to Skype unlimited and lease four numbers annually and I am more than pleased with the savings, performance and convenience.

  • Not intuitive, slow, not user friendly

    By bub$
    This new Skype is horrible. Hope Bill reverts back to classic Skype before users switch to competitors
  • Works great

    By Roccobowl
    I've used the Skype app many times both in the US and out of the country. If the Wi-Fi connection is good, the calls are flawless.
