Step10: Tap Next.
Step11: Verify your account. Depending on whether you signed up with a phone number or an email address, this step will vary:
Text – Open your phone’s Messages app, open the text from Skype, and note the four-digit code in the message. Type that code into the “Enter code” text box.
Email – Open your email inbox, open the “Verify your email address” email from “Microsoft account team”, and note the bold, four-digit code in the email. Type that code into the “Enter code” text box.
Step12: Tap Next. Doing so will confirm your phone number or email address, thus creating your Skype account. Your Skype app’s setup page will open after this point.
If you didn’t sign up with a phone number, you’ll be prompted to add and verify a phone number before you can continue.
Step13: Customize your Skype app. You can tap Skip in the top-right corner of the screen until you arrive at the main Skype interface to begin using Skype immediately, or you can set up your Skype app by doing the following:
Select a theme (Light or Dark)
Tap → twice.
