Latest version of Skype for Windows Phone brings nice improvements

The updates the Windows Phone version has received are different from the Windows 8 one, since it isn’t an universal app. The latest version of Skype for Windows Phone improves the general experience with the following new features:

  • new drawing app that allows you to draw a picture in a conversation window and send it to your contacts; you can also edit the existing pictures or annotate a Bing map
  • faster app resume time
  • HD screen support
  • sign-in improvements which allow users to automatically login with their Microsoft account that’s also linked to your phone
  • support for Skype account login

So, overall, most of these new features have been made available at the request of the users themselves. Nonetheless, it’s great to see that Microsoft takes care of them.
