Microsoft has announced, as part of its celebration of Skype's 10th anniversary, that the VoIP messaging service will soon add support for group video calls for Windows 10 Mobile, Android and iOS platforms.
Microsoft announced a new feature for its Skype messaging and VoIP service that will allow any user to invite anyone else to join a chat by sharing a link via email, social networking apps and more. People who don't use Skype who get invited can still join the chat on their PC via Skype for Web with no account required.
Skype has been updated for both iPhone and iPad with support for a number of features in iOS 9. Skype users can now reply directly from notifications, and the iPad app has added support for Split View and Slide Over multitasking.
Skype appears to be down. Like, totally down. We've received numerous reports from readers who are unable to connect to the service and communicate with others. We've been able to confirm said problems.
Microsoft is rolling out a new feature for Skype text messangers called "Mojis". It allows them to insert pre-created clips based on movies and TV shows in their text messages, similar to emojis symbols.
