Today, on the day Apple has released iOS 7, Skype has rolled out a new version of its app for the iPad and iPad. The new update improves a number of existing features, it also allows users to join group voice calls through their iOS device. Its now much easier for users to join a conference call or a group conversation with their friends and family through their Apple mobile device. Unfortunately, there’s no iOS 7 redesign as we’ve seen with other apps that were updated today, perhaps that might come at a later date.
This update also brings improvements for voice and video call quality, Skype almost always mentions this improvement in its app updates. The changelog also states that improvements have been made to accessibility options and the dialpad, but it doesn’t elaborate further on them. As previously mentioned, a lot of apps that have been updated today come with a redesign that’s much more consistent with the new “flat” user interface in iOS 7. The changelog of this latest Skype for iOS update does not mention anything about a redesign. There’s no word as yet when or if Microsoft is planning on revamping the app’s visuals. Skype for iPhone and iPad is available as a free download from the iTunes App Store.
