Remarkable features of Skype

Skype bots

With the latest updates, Skype brings virtual interlocutors named "Skype bots" which will help users to automate various processes and perform different tasks. Skype bots are available only for messaging, but the developers promise that in the future bots will become available for audio and video calls.

At this moment, Skype bots are available only for users from such countries as Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, India, New Zealand, Singapore, and US (of course, in the coming days, the bots will be available in other countries). Also should be noted that Skype bots are available only for latest versions of Skype for Windows, Android and iOS.

Usually you can add Skype bots using "Bots" tab, but if do not see it hence they are not supported in your country. Anyway, below you will find some Skype bots and link to add desired bot to your contacts list.

How to defend against fake bots?

In the near future it is possible that the intruders will try to fake their profiles so that people thought it is a real bot. To prevent this, remember that:
  1. Skype bot's avatar is hexagon-shaped (while normal avatars are round)
  2. A gray tick mark is present next to the bot name
  3. At the Skype bot profile should be the inscription “Skype Certified”
Certified Skype bot

What bots are able to do?

In the profile of each bot is displayed information about its capabilities and to which data it has access. Typically, bots are able to send and receive photos and instant messages. Also, they have access to your name, and Skype login and any messages or content that you or other members of the band left in the chat.

      Administrator,
      You choosed a wrong way to advertise your site. Furthermore, you even bother to look which bots are listed here (I mean that "the same list of bots for skype" it's a lie).

    André Baldo,
    A bot I liked to add, although it did not appear in this site, was Caption Bot. It gets a photo you send it and tries its best to send a textual description of it; awesome for blind people, such as myself, who use the internet, since screen reader programs, such as the free NVDA for pc or Talkback for Android cannot, yet, describe images. And I have heard of a chatbot called Mitsuku, but did not find, at least until now, a direct link to add it and direct links are the only way I can preview a bot since I am not from one of the supported countries...

      Hello André! Thank you for useful comment. It seems that Caption Bot was developed a little later, this is why it was not listed here. From now I fixed this thanks to your comment.

    Nils S.,
    Hello!,

    One question:
    Is there even more Skype Bots?
    Or is there maybe a side where hundreds are listed?
    Because I would have irgentwie loving with pleasure even more Bots, and I stand shortly before 500 Legit to contacts, and now the Bots could "help" me to get 500 now though xD I am no famenötiger person, but on 500 one can be quite proud
    please around answer

      Hi Nils! Of course, there exists more bots but you should trust them before sharing your profile details. This is why here are listed only official bots.

      About your desire to get 500 contacts, I recommend you to look for posts in the Language learning section from on official community. I'm sure, there you'll find many friends.

      ps. Apropos, I can help to increase your counter by +1, just add me to contacts list (username: SkaipOrg).

      Not sure how Skype bots are related to Push-to-talk, but I allowed myself to fix your link.
