In Skype, guests are able to interact with you regardless of whether they are using the service. There is no limit to how many conversations a Skype guest can be a part of. Guests have 24 hours to use the Skype guest account and can only be a part of one conversation at a time. They cannot be added as a contact. If you do not have an account with Skype, you can try it without creating one.

There are several optional fields that you can complete, including your birthdate, gender, city, and mobile phone number.
Can I use Skype with a Gmail account?
In addition to Facebook, Microsoft Outlook, and many other email services, Skype also allows you to add contacts from a number of existing email services, but not Gmail. It turns out that you cannot sign in to Skype using your Google account on an Android device, according to a Skype support article. Skype account creation or use is still required for you to be able to use the service.
Why is Skype asking for a Microsoft account?
There are many Microsoft devices and services that can be accessed through a Microsoft account. In addition to these, you are also able to log into Skype, Outlook.com, OneDrive, Windows Phone, and Xbox LIVE with the same account. The good thing about this is that your files, photos, contacts, and settings will be able to follow you from device to device.

The Skype website has a page called Create an Account that can be found under Resources. You will need to enter your name and password for your second account in the Create an Account form, as well as an email address, Skype name, and password for your first account. For the creation of the account, click on “I Agree — Continue” and follow the instructions.
