How To Find and Add Contacts in Skype

You’ve got the latest version of Skype installed and then what’s next? You have to fill it up with contacts so you could start making video calls or record Skype  calls. You can start by searching and adding contacts in Skype or by importing your contacts from Facebook or your email’s address book.

Add contacts using Skype

  5. If the full name or Skype name entered matches multiple contacts, select the one you’re looking for and click Add Contact

Import contacts from Facebook or email’s address book

    • To import all contacts listed, click Add contacts.
    • To import only some contacts, uncheck those you don’t want to import and click Add contacts.
    • If you don’t want to add any contacts from the list, click Skip.
