Skype has been promising some big updates over the next little while, including chat sync, but today they're starting off with a fresh, new, iOS 7-themed makeover for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPhone that's definitely cleaner, flatter, and more-content centric.

- VoiceOver announces the senders name when messaging
- VoiceOver improvements for group chats
