Skype minutes in Office 365

Your Office 365 Home subscription comes with 60 Skype minutes.

Skype-to-Skype calls are always free. But you can also use Skype to call mobile phones and landlines. Office 365 Home includes 60 minutes per month of Skype calls to mobile phones in more than 8 countries and to landlines in 60+ countries (only in markets where Skype is available). Just dial from Skype and your friends and family can pick up on their phone.

Changing the Skype account that your Skype minutes are linked to

To switch your minutes to a different Skype account, take the following steps:
