If you use Skype a lot to chat with your friends, you are in for a treat. The guys at Microsoft have updated the Skype app with a lovely new look and some additional features.

This release brings us a larger Recent tab which now shows more conversations on screen at once as you can see in the screenshot above. In addition to that, we can now see the person's status while viewing the Recent tab, rounded avatars in both Recent and People tab and being able to see your contacts while their status is set to 'Do not disturb' - something many people have been complaining about at the Skype forums.

Another minor update that is probably still worth mentioning is the chat bubble color adjustments which made ours dark blue while the other person's gray. In the previous version, our bubble used to be light blue whilst the color of the other person was slightly darker.


A refreshed look of the app and more:
• "Recent" tab update to see more chats without scrolling
• Round avatars and online status information on all screens
• Chat bubble color adjustment for added clarity
• Other fixes and stability improvements
