This article explains how to turn Call forwarding and voicemail On or Off in Skype on Windows 11.
Skype is a popular video chat and messaging application by Microsoft. It allows users to make voice and video calls, send instant messages, and share files with other Skype users for free over the internet.
One can configure many settings with Skype, including turning contact-only Skype calls on or off, hiding or unhiding the Today tab, turning Auto-download photos and files on or off, pasting copied messages as quotes, changing text size, sending messages with Enter key, showing the mini menu when selecting text, turning notifications on or off, turning on or off Caller ID, and more.
When you use the Skype app on Windows, you can turn on call forwarding and voicemail so you don’t miss important messages.
Turning on call forwarding in Skype can be helpful if you cannot answer calls on your computer or mobile device. By forwarding calls to another number, you can ensure you don’t miss important calls.
Additionally, it can be convenient if you prefer to answer calls on a different device, such as your mobile phone, while you’re away from your computer. By enabling voicemail, you can also receive and listen to messages left by callers who couldn’t reach you.
