I'm planning on taking a Windows Phone, and I was wondering if it is possible to talk to FB friends via the in-built Skype app, like you can do with the desktop application on a PC.

Can anyone please quickly confirm/deny this?

  • There is the Facebook Messenger app which is a lot better :) – Rowland Shaw Dec 22 '14 at 18:43
  • Oh, no, I know of Messenger :) I'm just curious if what I mentioned is possible. – Nicholas Richards Dec 22 '14 at 18:52

I don't think this feature exists in Skype for Windows Phone.


I haven't done this, but if you link your Microsoft and Facebook accounts I'm pretty sure this is possible, for friends that have both Skype and Facebook accounts.

You can definitely open someone's page in the Contacts application and Skype them from there. I've also switched to a Skype video call from a regular phone call as well.

  • No, but... Okay, if someone sends me a message on Facebook, will it show up on my Skype app? This is possible with desktop application; even for Facebook friends who don't have Skype. – Nicholas Richards Dec 22 '14 at 21:03
  • It doesn't seem to for me, but it does show on the Facebook Messenger app which works quite well... – Rowland Shaw Dec 27 '14 at 17:00
