Microsoft Releases Skype 5.1 Update For iPhone With New Features

Skype iOS App

Hot on the heels of releasing a major update for Skype for iPhone app, Microsoft today released an update in App Store. Skype 5.1 for iPhone is the result of Skype team listening to user feedback and immediately addressing those comments.

Skype 5.1 for iPhone introduces some of the features you wanted most:

  • You can now delete a conversation from the recent list with a long press on recents. You can also edit messages you’ve recently sent with a long press on the message. (Just as you can long press on an individual message to delete it.)
  • Tap the “add favorites” link to easily fill your favorites screen with the people you contact the most.
  • The People list now matches the desktop better: we have added the “Skype” filter; the “online” filter now includes users set to online, away and do not disturb; and best of all your filter settings are saved.

Download the update on your iOS device from App Store.
