The problem with this method is that you will be able to sign in with microsoft but you will not be able to enter the chats or your contacts, since the web version of Skype from a mobile browser is very limited, for a better experience we recommend using the native Skype mobile application.

Sign in to Skype web from a Windows/MacOS PC

Logging into Skype from a computer is a fairly simple procedure and similar across different operating systems. Here are the steps to log in from a computer:

  1. open your browser default (only Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge -formerly Internet Explorer- are compatible).
  2. Access the website skype official
  3. Look for the option “Log in” located on the right side, click on it and choose “use skype online”.
  4. Enter your email, telephone either skype user and press «Following«.
  5. Enter your password and click on the button «Log in«.
  6. Congratulations! you will already be using the web version of Skype, you will be able to initiate conversations and even make calls (to mobile phone numbers or Skype users) or video calls.

Skype is a very useful tool that can be used on many platforms, however, in its mobile version it requires you to download the application to get the most out of it, making it impossible to access chats or contacts from the browser if you don’t use said application.

Common Skype sign-in issues

Sometimes the app can give us errors, before uninstalling it you can check if you are within the following cases:

  1. Unstable internet connection. If you are connected by WIFI or mobile data, it is likely that you will not be able to sign in to skype due to bad signal. Try connecting from another location, move closer to the router, or use a wired connection if possible.
  2. Check your username and password. Since a single space (if you copy and paste) can lead to errors.
  3. Skype service is down. It is not the most normal, although you can try websites like is to see if anyone else is having connection problems with Skype.
