Steps

  1. 1
    To start with, we should unlock our phone which we can do by pressing the 'Lock' Button on the right-hand side of the handset or the 'Home' button which is the big round button at the bottom of the screen
    .

    Once we are at the home screen, it will just be a case of finding the Skype icon
    .
    Yours may look a little different, as this is personalized and in a folder. The icon itself is light blue and white and has a blue 'S' in the center.

    .
    Click on the profile picture to bring up your Profile settings.

    Now we can see we have 'Push Notifications', 'In App Notifications' and also 'In App Sounds'
    .
    Simply click on the green button to enable or disable each of these options. These work together because the In App Notification will be the visual aid and the In App Sound is a notification through a beep or a buzz or something similar.

    Seeing as they work together, if 'In App Notifications' is disabled then 'In App Sounds' will be disabled
    .
    However, you can have 'In App Notifications' enabled but the In App Sounds disabled' but not visa versa.
