Although Windows Phone users might not always get the latest Skype updates and features before iOS and Android users, today the Skype team pushed out a nice update for it WP8/WP8.1 client. The latest update brings some interesting new features such as location sharing, notification controls for individual chat conversations (mute specific chats), and more. Check out the official change log below:
- Location Sharing
- Click the ‘+’ icon in a chat and select ‘share location’ to share your location with the people in your conversation
- Save Picture
- To save a photo: tap the image to enlarge it, then tap for more menu options and select ‘save photo’
- Notification Controls for Individual Conversations
- In a chat, tap for more options and select ‘notifications’. Here you can choose to turn notifications for that conversation on or off, so you’re only notified about incoming messages if you want to be.
