If you are busy and you cannot answer a call on Skype, the Skype voicemail can do that for you.

Afterwards you can listen to your voice messages and return the calls when it is convenient for you.

Setting up a voicemail on Skype is very easy.

You can activate Voice Messaging manually from your account, for free. After you have activated it, you’ll need to set up your Voice Messaging preferences.
