Skype iphone

Microsoft has announced a new version of Skype for the iPhone that adds a number of new features and improvements, including a way to save or delete photos in its chat UI.

Here's what will be included in the 5.7 update, which should be available from iTunes sometime today:

  • 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.
