How to Find New Contacts in Skype

You just started using Skype app and would like to add your friends and colleagues to the contact list? No worries, it’s easy. In this article, we will explain how to find and add new contacts to Skype.

Sync Your Contacts

The easiest way to find your friends on Skype is to Enable synchronization of your contacts. To do so, open the Skype app and go to Settings > Contacts. In the upper-right corner checkmark the tab Sync my contacts. You can refresh it if you added some new contacts after you synchronized it with Skype.

Use Search Tab

To find new friends to your contact list on Skype, open the app and click on Search tab – People, groups & messages. Type your friend’s actual name, Skype nickname or email address and press Enter.

You will see a list of people with similar information. Select your friend and the conversation window will appear. You can send a message and this contact will be automatically added to your list.

Note: You will only be able to send up to 10 messages or images until your friend will accept your friend request.

Invite a Friend

If you’d like to add a friend who is not yet registered on Skype, you can easily invite them. Just write your friend’s name in the Search tab, and if they are not registered, Skype will suggest you to invite them, via email or link sharing.

Copy a link and send it to a friend on social networks, mobile phone or email. After this, your friend will click on it, follow the registration procedure, and you will see them in your Skype contact list.
