The app’s home screen has been modified to allow users to easily swipe between contacts, recent and favorites. The size of the contact tiles has been altered to fit more tiles on the screen and polished the User Interface a bit.

The updated version also brings a new People List Filter, which allows you to filter your phone’s people list so that you can choose to see only Skype contacts, or all contacts, or only the available people.

  • Now it’s so simple to find people who you are looking for, you can simply filter your contacts list to only view Skype contacts.
  • New and enhanced home screen layout.
  • Speed enhancements and general bug fixes.

But, still the app doesn’t support video messages, which has been available on other platforms like iOS, Android, Mac, BlackBerry and Windows since 2 months.

You can download the app from Windows Phone Store for free.
