Based on the user feedback, Microsoft Skype team has updated their iOS app to v5.7 with many new improvements. In the Skype 5.7 for iPhone update, we addressed some of the most common user suggestions like faster chat load time, ability to save/delete photo and more.
- Save and delete photo: If you want to save a memorable photo to your camera roll or delete a sent photo from a chat, simply press and hold the image and the options will appear.
- Faster chat load time: Now when you receive a notification and tap it to open the app, the message will be there waiting for you without any delays.
- Avatars for all chat: You can now see all avatars for groups and people, and if they’re changed on other platforms, they’ll update in the app too so you always have the latest showing.
- People list UI improvements: In 5.7, we’ve made it easier to find the people list search and filter options, so you can quickly and easily find the person you want to chat with and get started.
If you’ve not yet downloaded the latest version of Skype for iPhone, you can get the update from the App Store – all you’ll need is iOS 7 or later.
