Skype for Windows Phone updated to v2.24 with new Drawing feature. It is the first time Microsoft has released a new feature on Skype for Windows Phone among its mobile platforms. This update also includes single-sign on improvements, faster app resume and more. One notable addition is the ability to start Skype calls from the web and from chats, with third-party app access to Skype.

Here’s the full list of new features in Skype 2.24 for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8:

Sign In Improvements:

On Windows Phone 8.1, to save time you can now automatically sign in using the Microsoft Account linked to your phone. Plus, we’ve heard existing users ask for the flexibility to sign in with their Skype account, so we’ve added the ability to do this too. Don’t forget to link your Skype account to your Microsoft Account to fully experience improved security, privacy and password recovery.

HD Screen Support:

If you have an HD screen, Skype will now appear in all its glory.

Faster App Resume Time on Windows Phone 8.1:

We always want to help you access your conversations as quickly as possible, so we’ve worked hard to make the Windows Phone 8.1 app resume even faster.

Download it here from Windows Phone Store for free.
