You can now share your iPhone or Android screen on Skype mobile app. Here's everything you need to know about this.
Microsoft and Amazon have been busy, apparently, with Skype calling on its way to Alexa-powered devices as soon as this week.
Skype has today updated its iOS app to take advantage of some of the new features and APIs that iOS 10 brought to the iPhone. Available to download as a free update or as a full download, the updated Skype iOS app now features support for things like CallKit, allowing the app to behave in just the same way as the built-in Phone app.
Available for Windows, Mac and Linux, Franz takes all of your instant messaging accounts - from Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Hangouts, Skype, Slack and others - and crams them into one app that keeps everything in the same place.
Microsoft has shown continual willing to build on the user-experience that is thrust into the face of users when interacting with Skype. Since purchasing the company back in 2011, the company has pumped significant resources into ensuring that the whole platform is as smooth and seamless as possible for those who interact with it on a daily basis. Part of that development has focused on overhauling and improving the customer-facing mobile apps on iOS and Android, which has now been updated with a new group video calling experience for up to 25 people that was originally teased back in January.
In celebration of ten years of free video calling, Skype is rolling out free group video calling for iOS, Android and Windows 10 Mobile in the coming weeks, with the option to pre-register available right now.

A few days back, Skype introduced some revamped features for its desktop client, with a distinct focus on improving the user's instant messaging experience. So while Skype is busy improving the users' experience on both, the mobile and desktop version of its app, let us introduce you to Skype Qik. Taking a distinctly different route than Skype, Skype Qik is built for asynchronous video messaging, where you create and share video messages with online and offline users. The app gives you a slight peek into what Skype may have looked like had it started out as an app for the mobile.
Skype just received a fresh new design and a UI overhaul for Windows and Mac, with much emphasis placed on the IM functionality. According to Skype, a large number of users have been found to be sending IMs during a video chat, and I can definitely include myself in that list. If you’ve been using Skype on mobile, the change might not be a shocker to you as you pick up the design cues that were originally used for the mobile versions of Skype. While the new Skype has been released for Mac, Windows users get access to a preview version for now.
