How to Call Emergency Numbers via Skype VoIP app over Apple iPhone

Skype has updated its iOS app (check out for the live free version 4.5 of its iPhone app) many interesting and essential utility things have been added or corrected like:


1. Emergency call redirection using Skype on Apple Gadgets

Skype official Blog says: (For iPhone only)

“Emergency calls now routed through native dialer.”

Thenextweb also shares as:  

iPhone users will now be able to begin calling emergency numbers via the Skype app if they have it open, with Skype ensuring that such calls are directed to the native dialer. VoIP services have traditionally be restricted from making such calls, so this may be a welcome addition if you use the iPhone app regularly.

I am unable to deduce, what is the correct stance, whether we may call emergency numbers with Skype or not? Or only this is permitted over Apple iOS (iPhone) Skype app, version 4.5 onward?

2. Automatic Call Recovery and Re-connection

No hassle to deal with drop calls; they have become smart enough and will reconnect themselves automatically now …
