Im pretty sure nobody wants their phone to be ringing from time to time and skype taking over your life specially when you are just like me, a online freelancer who has a lots of contacts that almost every hour there is a call on skype.
In the new iOS 10, Apple made something really cool. It allows the users to have a full screen accept and decline button just like a normal call whenever someone is calling you from Skype or other services. They called it the CallKit.
The only problem is that if you use Skype a lot, they’ll basically end up taking over your Phone app. And personally, I don’t like that. It makes finding “normal” phone calls from the Recents tab much more difficult.
Below is the guide from iphonehacks.com on how to stop it:
Disable Integrated Calling in Skype
To disable the iOS 10 integrated calls in Skype, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Open the Skype app and tap on the “My info” tab.
Step 2: Select “Settings”, then swipe down the find the “Integrated Calling” option.
Step 3: Tap on the toggle to turn it off.
Manually Delete Past Calls from Recents
Now that new calls are disabled, it’s time to clear the old ones. Find the Skype call in the Recents menu, swipe “left” on it and tap on “Delete”.
No Such Option for WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger Yet
I went scuba diving in both Messenger and WhatsApp’s setting section but I couldn’t find anything to disable the CallKit functionality. Maybe they’ll add it soon. But for now, it’s only for Skype.
With that said above, you can now disable it easily and continue your life as a normal iphone user. Thank you to the article. Share this let everyone know how to do it. Thanks!
