Skype for iPad was updated yesterday, to Version 4.6.
The headline new feature in this update is described as a ‘beautiful new calling experience’. I got a chance to use the updated app a little yesterday afternoon – and the calling interface does look more attractive. I wasn’t on a lengthy call so I didn’t get a chance to see what else might be included in the new experience.
Here’s the remainder of the change list for this latest update:
✓ Beautiful new calling experience
✓ Mark all your recent chats as read with just a few taps.
✓ General fixes and improvements
- One-to-one chats now appear in the correct order.
As I’ve said before, I really like the Skype iPad app – far better than I like their Mac app in fact. I also like how often the iPad app is updated.
Here’s an App Store link for Skype for iPad; it’s a free app.
