Skype Vector Icon

This Skype icon is a responsive icon. This means that it's optimized for four resolutions, from tiny 16x16 until highly detailed 80x80. The style comes from the latest Microsoft Office, which makes it perfect for any Windows applications, in particular, those with ribbon toolbar control. Unlike other icon packs that have merely hundreds of icons, this monster icon pack contains 15,600 icons, all in the same style and quality.

Story about Skype Icon

Back in the heyday of telephones, a lot was left to the imagination—what the other person was wearing, what noise was that in the background, and when the person on the other line is a complete stranger, everything but the voice was a point of interest. So in true human fashion, pretending to be another person over the phone was a hobby of many.

In 2003, video-calling service Skype was first released by creators Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis. Skype was originally named “Skyper,” before they discovered that it was no longer available in all internet domains. Skype heavily influenced FaceTime and all the other video-calling apps that came thereafter. By 2015, users were spending a total of 3 billion minutes per day on Skype, and have spent two trillion minutes worth of video calls.

The current Skype logo consists of the name Skype in color white using a rounded typeface, with a bright blue background.
