Microsoft has been slowly updating its stable of apps on iOS with dedicated support for Apple's latest mobile device, the iPhone X. The latest to get that treatment is Skype, which has adopted explicit support for the iPhone X's taller screen, along with a new design in its latest update.
The update now allows Skype to extend to fill the entire screen on iPhone X, giving it more vertical space. The bigger change for all iPhone users, however, is the rollout of the new design, which first entered testing back in October. Following backlash from its previous redesign over the summer, Microsoft has implemented a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen to access important functions. Numeric badges will now appear on the navigation bar for chats, calls, and highlights. Some general UI spacing and other aspects have been tweaked as well.
Here's a look at the full release notes for Skype version 8.12:
- A new and improved design.
- Support for iPhone X.
- General performance and reliability improvements.
If you're using an iPhone as your mobile device of choice, you can pick up all of the changes by grabbing the latest version of Skype on the App Store now.
