Automatically Add Friends to Skype on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Imado, Eng
Hi. You are watching VisiHow, and today I am going to show you how you can automatically add friends on the Skype application on the iPhone 6.
To begin with, we can unlock our phone which we can do by pressing the lock button on the right-hand side of the phone.
Alternatively, we can use the home button which is the big round at the bottom of the screen.
Once the lock screen is up, we can simply swipe and enter the passcode, or just hold the finger into the home button which doubles as a fingerprint scanner as well.
Once we are at the home screen, it is just a case of finding the Skype app, which in my case is in a folder. We can see that the icon itself is light blue and white with a blue S in the center as well.
Tap the icon to open the app. It will either take us to this screen, where it has a list of most recent contacts, or it will take us to the sign in screen, in which case you can refer to my other video where I walk you through how to sign in.
For today, we're going to go for the top right-hand corner where you have a very small circle with a profile picture.
Tap that once to open up the menu, and go down to the "Settings" which is our bottom option here, with a very small blue cog on the left-hand side, and then a small gray arrow on the right hand side.
Tap once, to open up the "Settings".
We need to go down to "Contacts" which is on the left hand side here, and it says "Automatically add friends", and underneath, "you'll need to manually find and add friends on Skype."
At the moment, it is disabled because it is mostly white, where the others are green.
Click that button and it will take us to this menu.
"We will look for people we know on Skype", we can either press "learn more" which is in a white here, under this little piece of writing.
This will talk us through exactly what this will do. To go back go the white arrow in the top left corner.
Otherwise, we can press "Not Now" if we decide that we don't want to.
It will take us back to here.
Alternatively, we can press the white arrow and this slightly dark blue circle towards the bottom of the screen.
Because we are on a mobile, it will ask for access to our contact list, so we can either press "Cancel" on the left side to go back, "or" "Settings" on the right-hand side. Press "Settings". This will take us to the "Settings" menu.
As we can see the top option here is "Contacts", and on the left we have a picture of a little profile person and a few colored tabs down the left-hand side of the icon.
Click this button on the right-hand side to enable, or disable.
Once we enable this and it is green, we can double click the home button.
Tap to go back to the 'Skype' menu.
Now we are back to our 'Home' menu, where it will automatically add our contacts from our mobile contacts list.
