Drawing Comes to Skype for Windows Phone

Today we’re excited to release Skype 2.24 for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8, which brings drawing to Skype for the first time! Get creative and draw on a canvas, add silly touches to a photo or draw the fastest route on a map and share it with your friends and family.

Here’s the full list of new features in Skype 2.24 for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8: 

  • Drawing

Click the ‘+’ icon in a chat and select ‘drawing’ to draw a picture, add a personal touch to a photo or annotate a Bing map.

  • Sign In Improvements

On Windows Phone 8.1, to save time you can now automatically sign in using the Microsoft Account linked to your phone. Plus, we’ve heard existing users ask for the flexibility to sign in with their Skype account, so we’ve added the ability to do this too. Don’t forget to link your Skype account to your Microsoft Account to fully experience improved security, privacy and password recovery.

  • HD Screen Support

If you have an HD screen, Skype will now appear in all its glory.

  • Faster App Resume Time on Windows Phone 8.1

We always want to help you access your conversations as quickly as possible, so we’ve worked hard to make the Windows Phone 8.1 app resume even faster.
