Call scheduling in Skype makes it easy to set a reminder for a one-to-one call with you and your friends or family. You don't need a shared calendar since the invitation and reminders are all inside of Skype.

To schedule a call:

  1. Sign into Skype.

  2. Go to one of your chats.

  3. Select the Schedule a Call Schedule Call button button to get started. It will either be next to the compose bar or in your Add-ins menu:

    • Add-in button in Skype for mobile and tablet

    • Add-in button in Skype for desktop

  4. In the Schedule a Call window, you can give your call a title, pick a date and time, and set an alert.

  5. Select Send and the call reminder will be sent to your chat where your contact can then accept or decline the scheduled call.
