On June 9, we announced that an update to Skype for iPhone was on the way, and today it’s time to try it out for yourself: Skype 5.0 for iPhone has arrived! We were excited to use your feedback to remaster the app around you, to help you connect with your friends and family simply and quickly.
We’re excited for you to see how the new app has been redesigned to put your conversations first, providing you with a smoother, leaner and more integrated experience. Skype for iPhone is up to five times faster and it is also more stable and more reliable. Navigating through the new UI is easier and more fluid. Whether it’s creating a group chat, sending a photo or starting a video call, the new Skype for iPhone has been rethought to be simple and intuitive.
Skype 5.0 for iPhone is just the beginning of a new Skype experience on iPhone. You can download the update starting today in the Apple App Store – you’ll just need iOS 7 or later. We’re hard at work on a new version for iPad users, too. Keep updated by following us on Twitter and Facebook, or join us in the Skype Community to let us know what you think of the new app!
