Microsoft’s latest update for the Windows Phone version of Skype allows users to draw in the app itself, along with some other new improvements and features.

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. You can then select “drawing” to draw a picture, and you can also draw on a photo or on a Bing map.

You’ll also get HD screen support. In addition, on Windows Phone 8.1, you can also now automatically sign in using the Microsoft Account linked to your phone. This saves you time when logging in. You’ll also be able to log in with your Skype account information.

Finally, the 2.24 update should offer users faster app resume times.
