How to Transfer Contacts from One Skype Account to Another

So, you want to move your contacts from one Skype account to another? As there is no option to transfer contacts between accounts in the mobile app, you need to use Skype for the web to get through the task. Follow this quick guide to find out how it works:

You have opened a new Skype account to chat with only a few selected friends and looking for a hassle-free way to access some of your contacts from the old account. Well, I was in the same boat as you a few days back. Though not so upfront, there is a way to transfer contacts from one Skype account to another.

First and foremost, you can’t move your contacts from old Skype account to the new one using the mobile app. You will have to use Skype for the web to transfer contacts between two accounts. Just ensure both accounts appear in each other’s contact list.

Note: During the process, if you are working in the single browser, you will have to sign-in and sign-out of both the accounts multiple times. Hence, it would be better to open two different web browsers, i.e. Firefox and Chrome and sign-in to both the new and old accounts to make switching smooth sailing.

Step #1. First off, you need to open in two different browsers and sign into both the accounts.

Step #2. Now, in your old account, you have to search Skype name or email address of the account you wish to send contacts to.
