Your status lets your Skype contacts know whether you are available for a chat or a call. A status symbol is displayed next to your name in the contact list. When you open Skype, it’s set automatically, but you can change it at any time.
By changing your status, mood message or profile picture, you can let your friends know what you have been up to.
