Welcome to the Skype community. To get started please read our short welcome post. Thanks!

What is that 'bubbly' alert sound?

Skype plays a bubbly sound to alert me to something. The tool bar icon also bounces. I use MAC. When I go to Skype and look to see if I've been messaged or if someone is trying to connect, there's nothing. What is that sound?

You might open Skype preferences >>> Notifications >>> Details.
There you probably will be able to know what event refers to the bubbly sound.

And untick if needed.

Check Preferences > Notifications > Details 


and look for the event "when contact becomes available"


I had this turned on (it's on by default), so every time someone in my contacts list changed their status to "available", I got a notification.


Turning off the notification for this event solved the problem.
