New Skype update increases speed and emoji size (Live now)

Skype has announced a new update on their eponymous app for Windows Phone.


Skype 2.25 for Windows Phone should bring the following improvements.

Emoticons – bigger is better We know you love our emoticons so now when you reply with just an emoticon, it appears nice and big. That’ll certainly help you make a point!

Delete Message and Clear Conversation You’ve been telling us you’d like to delete individual chat messages or clear a whole chat conversations, so now in 2.25 you can; but remember the messages will still show on other platforms.

Improved Chat Load Times Now when you receive a notification and tap it to open the app, the message will load more quickly.

Group Chat Improvements You can now see all avatars for groups, and if they’re changed on other platforms they’ll update in the app too, so you always have the latest showing. If you often use group chat, you can now add groups to your favourites list, so you can get into your conversations quickly.

The update is not yet live but should be rolling out in the coming hours.

Update: It’s live.
