As we continue to roll out the new Skype, we’re discontinuing the option to login via Facebook in January 2018 and will streamline all Skype logins via your Microsoft account. Using a Microsoft Account will enable you to login-in via single sign-in, unlocking all your Microsoft services – including Skype, Office Online, Outlook, OneNote, OneDrive, and more – in one experience, with just one password. Currently, using your Facebook account to sign in to Skype is not supported on Skype for Windows 10, the new Skype for Android and iPhone, and the new Skype for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

To continue using Skype, either create a new Microsoft account or sign in with an existing Microsoft account if you already have one.

If you’ve created a new account for Skype and want to transfer your contacts from your old account to your new one, you can do this in Skype for Windows, Mac and Linux.

If you’re using the same account for Skype but on a new computer, you don’t need to transfer your contacts – just sign in to Skype on your new device and your contacts will be right there.
