Update: The Skype update for Windows Phone is now live. Enjoy doodling.
In a blog post, Microsoft says the new 2.24 app update will allow users to "get creative and draw on a canvas, add silly touches to a photo or draw the fastest route on a map and share it with your friends and family." The feature is enabled by clicking on the "+" icon during a chat. Users can then select "drawing" to draw a picture. They can also draw on a photo or on a Bing map.
Microsoft has also added in HD screen support for this Windows Phone Skype app update. It added:
"On Windows Phone 8.1, to save time you can now automatically sign in using the Microsoft Account linked to your phone. Plus, we've heard existing users ask for the flexibility to sign in with their Skype account, so we've added the ability to do this too."
Finally, the 2.24 update should offer users faster app resume times. Will you be using this Skype app update for drawing?
