The new version makes it easy to switch between your headset, speaker, or Bluetooth device. If you’ve ever tried carrying on a Skype conversation for hours, you may want to switch to Bluetooth in order to give your eyes (and the eyes of your contact) a break from the video messaging. This new update should make that a little more seamless.
In addition, one-on-one chats now appear in the correct order, which will ease a lot of the confusion when continuing a conversation.
The new update also has a surprise for first time users wanting to take advantage of Skype’s 250 million subscriber reach: new introduction screens. If you’ve never used Skype before, these can certainly walk you through the basics. If you’re looking for something a little more detailed, you can also always check out our Skype tutorials.
