  • Skype for iOS and iPadOS now supports Turkish for Translated Conversations.
  • A recent update to the app also allows people to revoke and disable all links to an individual profile.
  • The update, which started rolling out last week, brings Skype for version 8.80.1

Microsoft recently released an update for Skype on iOS and iPadOS. The update brings the app to version 8.80.1 on both platforms and includes a couple of new features. Skype now supports more languages for Translated Conversations and includes the option to disable links for specific profiles.

Specifically, users can now use Skype for Translated Conversations in Turkish. A total of 41 languages can now be translated through Skype, though some of those are different variations of the same languages, such as Spanish (Mexico) and Spanish (Spain).

Here's the full changelog from the App Store listing for Skype:

  • Support for more languages in Translated Conversations, i.e. Turkish
  • Revoke & disable all existing links to your profile and create a new one
  • Bug fixes and improvements

The ability to revoke and disable links to Skype profiles should also come in handy. After sharing profile links over an extended period of time, a person may want a fresh start.

Skype has the ability to translate typed messages, though the feature does not work with group chats or group calls. The service can also translate spoken conversations in real-time.
