We're listening to your feedback and working hard to improve Skype.Here's what's new:- Messaging improvements – Add content to chats via the button and enjoy more room for your messages.- You can now auto accept follow requests.- General performance and reliability improvements. And they added all the other features they didn’t have on the summer update.Pay Pal has a Slack bot that lets you transfer funds through chat and you can Venmo money through i Message.You can even ask Siri to send some cash through Pay Pal for you.It would be helpful if the person who creates the chat is the only person who can remove people, and perhaps give people admin of their choice to have permission to remove people, or edit the chat. They’re not the same as skype, such as the 1 on 1 personal conversation feel. I want message sending to be instant, because sometimes it could lag up. I see you guys are polishing up the desktop skype so it’ll take longer to release, but I bet it’ll be worth it. It’s much less hassle and it’s because I have them added as a friend in he first place. Although highlights is glitched still and yet relatively a new concept.In past updates, f you were the creator of the chat, you would be the only one able to remove people. Skype has a big team and is backed up by Microsoft. I’ve been reading a lot of negative reviews about the app that I simply don’t understand.
I don’t know a single person who uses them, if anything they despise them. Other than that, I really enjoy this update.edit: okay I’ve noticed something that will hopefully be fixed.Upgrading to the new Skype may result in the deletion of content from older conversations.To save photos and videos that were previously sent or received in an older version of Skype, save that content to your camera roll/photo gallery before upgrading to the new Skype.I find it easy to send messages to people and to call contacts.
My one complaint is that around 5% of the time, I’m not notified with a banner (notifications are indeed on in settings) or a vibration/ding when receiving a message, which can be frustrating. Thanks to the skype team for working hard to be putting out so many updates and keeping the system functioning well.To send money, you’ll need to be using the latest version of the Skype mobile app, but the friend or family member who’s receiving the funds can be using any version of Skype.
