How do I find friends on Skype?

“Outlook good.”

Yes, I know Outlook is good, but how do I change my Skype password?

“Ask again later.”

OK let’s face it – your Magic 8 Ball isn’t cutting it with all those wishy-washy answers to your pressing, real-life Skype questions. So perhaps you should visit Skype Tips & Tricks blog for some direct answers? All signs point to yes.

There, Matthew de Beer explores some of the most common questions he hears about Skype. The questions range from how to find friends and add them as contacts, how to configure audio and video settings, how to change your password, and even “how does Skype make money?”

“When I mention I work at Skype I often get asked how Skype makes money,” de Beer writes. “We are so well known for free Skype-to-Skype audio and video calls, instant messaging, screen sharing and file sending that people forget some of the other features we offer that cost a little.”

Such as: Using Skype Credit or a subscription, making low-cost calls to landlines and mobiles, sending text messages, buying a Skype Number so your friends can call you and you can answer in Skype, or set up Skype To Go™ for your friends so you can call them when you’re abroad.
