Skype for Windows Phone, VoIP and messaging, Instant message news

The last time we received an update on our Windows Phones, it came with a great way to customize your images with drawings. Now Skype 2.25 for Windows Phone has delivered some new changes that will enhance the look and feel of the app somewhat.

The following improvements have been made to Skype for Windows Phone (via):

  • Emoticons – bigger is better We know you love our emoticons so now when you reply with just an emoticon, it appears nice and big. That’ll certainly help you make a point!
  • Delete Message and Clear Conversation You’ve been telling us you’d like to delete individual chat messages or clear a whole chat conversations, so now in 2.25 you can; but remember the messages will still show on other platforms.
  • Improved Chat Load Times – Now when you receive a notification and tap it to open the app, the message will load more quickly.
  • Group Chat Improvements – You can now see all avatars for groups, and if they’re changed on other platforms they’ll update in the app too, so you always have the latest showing. If you often use group chat, you can now add groups to your favourites list, so you can get into your conversations quickly.
