You know Skype is the world’s largest application that provides video chat and voice call services. Users may exchange such digital documents as images, text, videos, etc.

We are using Google Drive, Dropbox, and similar services to send and receive files each other. Sometimes, one a live chat we are using Skype to send and receive documents.

On a lot of forums, users asked about Skype file size limits. Is there any restriction on the size of files that could be transferred? That’s why we are posting.
1. Incoming photo transfer on iOS is limited to 25MB. There is no limitation in outgoing image size, though.

2. According to the studies, there are no limits in place for file transfers from Android devices.
