To chat, follow these steps:
Start the Skype app and sign in.
You don’t need to sign in when you’ve previously run the Skype app. Like most apps on your phone, Skype continues to run until you sign out or turn off the phone.
At the main Skype screen, touch the People tab and choose a contact.
Or you can choose one of the contact icons shown on the main screen.
Type your text in the text box.
The box is at the bottom of the screen. It says Type a Message Here.
Touch the Blue arrow icon to send the message.
As long as your Skype friend is online and eager, you’ll be chatting in no time.
At the far right end of the text box, you find a Smiley icon. Use this icon to insert a cute graphic in your text.
