Skype for Windows Phone

Skype is getting better and better with each update on Windows Phone. While it may be behind in features from time-to-time compared to the Android and iOS versions, it’s still the best we have right now. Let’s check out what’s new in the latest version.

The last two big pieces of Skype news revolved around the ceasing of development for Windows Phone 7.x users and the most recent update. That last update finally brought the ability to send and receive video messages to Windows Phone. Something the iOS version of Skype has had since earlier this year. Here’s what’s new in version 2.11:

  • Tap and hold on unwanted chats to remove them from your recent list.
  • General fixes and improvements

While not the biggest update in terms of new features, the ability to remove conversations from your recent list should be handy for heavy Skype users wanting to tidy up. The app also features your general bug fixes and performance improvements. Notice anything different? Sound off below.
