Skype is usually one of the most used communication applications in the workplace, however, more and more users decide to use it also in the personal field to replace other popular ones such as WhatsApp or Messenger. Skype has, for example, the possibility of being used both on mobile devices and on your computer. Also, thanks to its notification system, you will always be up to date with any message received in real time. The problem comes when we do not receive Skype notifications usually on iPhone or Android.

Skype is a multiplatform program that can be used both on your computer and on your iPhone or Android. Notifications are usually enabled by default in any of the versions of Skype, however due to its multiplatform nature, a conflict or an erroneous configuration may be generated that prevents receiving notifications of messages received in Skype.
This has caused many users of mobile devices such as Android or iPhone to have warned of the impossibility of receiving notifications from Skype. In my personal case, I have an iPhone and it turns out that other users were sending me messages, however I did not receive any notification on my iOS device. To find out whether or not I had received a message, I had to open the Skype app on my iPhone.
This really is pretty awkward as we won’t know when someone sent us a message. It was then that I decided to check what was happening with my Skype notifications on iPhone or Android. After searching, I found that there is a setting in Skype that prevents you from receiving notifications on your mobile device when Skype is open on another device such as a computer.
This was precisely my problem since I use Skype on my PC and I never close it, so I stopped receiving notifications on my iPhone. Fortunately, Skype can solve this problem thanks to an adjustment in its app. However, in this tutorial we show you in detail how to solve the problem that prevents you from receiving Skype notifications on your Android phone or iPhone:
How to receive Skype notifications on my Android phone or iPhone.
– Open the Skype app on your iPhone or Android device.
– Once open you will have to click on your profile picture from the chat screen.
– Now click on Setting.
– In the new screen you will have to go to Notifications.
– Here you will have to make sure that all notifications are activated especially the one that says: Various devices.
This will allow you to receive notifications for Skype messages on your iPhone or Android even if Skype is open on other devices.
Alternative: To make sure that Skype Notifications work correctly on iPhone or Android.
It is important to check that system-level notifications are also activated on your iPhone or Android, since if the notifications of the Skype app are activated but those of your device are deactivated, you will not receive notifications.
To check Skype notifications on your iPhone or Android you will have to carry out the following steps:
On iPhone: Settings> Notifications> Skype> Allow notifications
On Android: Settings> Skype notifications or Settings> Applications> Skype> Notifications> Allow notifications and Show silently.
