A new version of sPortable (formerly Skype Portable) has been released. sPortable assists you with running Skype™ in a portable way without needing to install it in Windows. It's packaged as a portable app so you communicate on the go and it's in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. It's released as freeware for personal and business use.

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the Platform.

Skype is a trade mark of Skype and is not affiliated, sponsored, authorised or otherwise associated by/with the Skype group of companies.


sPortable allows you to run Skype™ without needing to install it. Make free audio and video calls as well as instant message with other users. Calling phones and sending SMS messages is available with a subscription.

sPortable is packaged in a Installer so it will automatically detect an existing installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.

Upgrades from sPortable 7 or 8 prior to sPortable will be moved to an sPortableLegacy7 or sPortableLegacy8 directory to preserve the existing installation. Settings for older releases are not compatible with the current release.
