Skype for Windows Phone 8 – version 2.13

Today we’re excited to release an update to Skype for Windows Phone 8, version 2.13.

As we continue the journey on Skype’s Mobile Future, we’ve focused this release of Skype for Windows Phone on getting you into the conversations you care about faster. In 2.13 we’ve made a significant improvement to the time it takes for the app and your recent conversations to load when you start up Skype from the tile.

In addition, following user feedback we’ve introduced copy and paste for instant messaging conversations. You can now press and hold an IM message, select copy and paste it to where you need it.

We’re improving accessibility too by adding a high contrast mode to the app – which is enabled when your Windows Phone is set to high contrast.

We are also excited to announce Skype for Windows Phone is now available in China following our strategic partnership in the region with Guangming Founder.

Get the updated version now from the Windows Phone Store.

We’re always looking to improve your experience on Skype and pay close attention to your feedback. To get the latest news and tips, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or join us on the Skype Community.

One thought on “Skype for Windows Phone 8 – version 2.13

  1. Not only did you make the app start/resume/load messages faster, but it seems I can now reliably send messages on 2G networks too.
