Skype 4.6 For iPhone And iPad Brings New Calling Experience

Skype has released a major update for its app for the iPhone and iPad last night. It comes with some new features and improvements such as an all-new calling experience.

Here’s what’s new in Skype 4.6 for iPhone and iPad according to the release notes:

  • New, beautiful calling experience
  • One-to-one chats now appear in the correct order
  • Option to select your message as ‘read’ with just a few taps
  • General fixes and improvements

You can see the screenshots of the new calling interface below. It looks a lot better.

Strangely, Skype hasn’t updated the images on the App Store with the screenshots of the new interface.

Please also note that if you get a popup informing you that “This version of Skype is only supported on unmodified version of iOS”, then simply tap on the OK button and you will be able to use to the app without any issue.

There is still no news about the group video chat feature, available in the desktop version the app for premium subscribers.

Let me know what you think of the new calling interface below.
