Skype 5.1 Update Download for iPhone – Top Features


Skype continues to improve its presence on iOS devices, now with the release of Skype 5.1 for iPhone.

Skype 5.1 for iPhone is an update of 44 MB which comes with a great number of features and improvements, one of which is the ability to edit the chat messages. Now, the user can add friends to favorites, keeping them close to those they communicate with most often, People list now looks more like the one from the desktop and there is a new filter called Skype, while Online filter may sort friends who have Online, Away or Do Not Disturb statuses. New filter settings can also be saved.

Microsoft Skype plans to bring new features to the application and when the time comes they will start to provide the best possible consumer experience. Interestingly, earlier last week was released Skype 5.0 for iOS, and it is commendable that the updates come so quickly to Apple platform.

Microsoft wants to be better than iMessage, but currently is limited to the loyalty of current Skype users rather than attracting new ones.
