How to Make a Skype Call on Amazon Echo Device


Hey everyone. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’m going
to show you how to link your Skype account to Amazon Alexa, and make a Skype call on
an Amazon Echo device. In late 2018, Amazon made it possible to link
your Skype account to the Amazon Alexa service. After linking your Skype account to Alexa,
you can then use voice commands to have Alexa make Skype-to-Skype calls or Skype-to-mobile
or Skype to landline calls on your Amazon Echo device. While Skype to Skype calls won’t incur any
charges, Skype to either mobile or landline calls will require you to purchase minutes
on Skype. As an alternative to Skype to mobile or landline
calls, you can still use the Alexa-to-Alexa calling service at no cost. Now let’s walk through the steps to link your
Skype account to Amazon Alexa, and to make a Skype call on an Amazon Echo device. Step 1. Tap to launch the Amazon Alexa app on your
smart device. Your Amazon Alexa home screen opens. Step 2. Tap the “Menu” icon in the upper left corner
of the screen. The menu icon features three horizontal lines. A menu flies in from the left side of the
screen. Step 3. Tap “Settings” in the menu. The Settings menu appears. Step 4. Tap “Communications” in the Alexa Preferences
section. The Communication screen appears. Step 5. Tap “Skype” in the Accounts section. The Skype Calling with Alexa screen appears. Step 6. Tap “Sign In” at the bottom of the Skype Calling
with Alexa screen. A Microsoft account sign in screen appears. Step 7. Enter the username associated with the Skype
account you want to connect to, and then tap “Next.” Enter the password associated with that account
and then tap “Sign In” on the next screen. The next screen asks if you want to give the
Amazon Alexa app permission to access your Skype information. Step 8. Tap “Yes” to give the Alexa app permission
to access your Skype information. A Skype is Linked screen appears. Tap “Done” at the bottom of this screen. You’ll be routed to your Skype account information
screen in the Amazon Alexa app. You can now have your Alexa devices call your
Skype friends. Example commands include, “Alexa, call Jackie”
or “Alexa, call Jackie on Skype.” Congratulations! You now know how to link your Skype account
to Amazon Alexa, and how to make a Skype call on an Amazon Echo device. Thanks for watching. Leave your thoughts and questions in the comments
