Skype calling with Alexa enables you to make and receive Skype voice and video calls on compatible Alexa-enabled devices.
Skype calling with Alexa enables you to make and receive Skype-to-Skype calls and Skype-to-Phone calls (calling phone numbers with Skype).
Skype enables you to use the front-facing camera on a compatible mobile or screened Alexa-enabled device to make video calls.
Use Skype calling with Alexa to make Skype-to-Skype calls domestically or internationally at no additional cost.
Skype to Phone (mobile or landline) uses Skype Credit or subscription; refer to the Skype website for calling rates. Emergency calling is not supported on Skype calling with Alexa.
To use Skype calling with Alexa, you need the following:
To link your Skype account in the Alexa app:
To unlink account, follow the steps for linking and select Unlink.
After you link your Skype account to your Alexa account, you ask Alexa to call a Skype contact from your compatible Alexa-enabled device by saying:
"Call [Contact Name] on Skype."
When you receive an incoming call from Skype, you hear: the Skype ringtone, then who it is from, such as “[Contact Name] on Skype would like to talk,” followed by the Skype ringtone again. Then, “It’s [Contact Name].”
Manage your Skype Credit, subscriptions and contacts, and view Skype’s terms and conditions, on the Skype app or Skype website.
