We’ve heard Microsoft-owned Skype testing a new Video Messages feature since mid-February, and in June the video messaging became available to everyone. As for today, Skype has finally updated its app for iOS, and now it supports free and unlimited Video Messages, basically short videos Skype users can send to each other, even when offline.
The rest of the changes in the latest Skype version 4.9 apps include audio and video call stability improvements, more reliable photo sharing, improved accessibility for video messaging and as usual, some general fixes and improvements. As many users have complained lately, Skype calls have been prone to quality issues, dropping mid-call quite often. So audio and video call stability improvements was what the app really needed to come. Skype added a new video on its YouTube channel, with the description reading:
“Memorable moments could happen when friends or family aren't there to share them. Recording and sharing a video message is easy, and it's just as easy to reply. Take a look at how you can capture life's every day moments and share them with your friends and family over Skype”
