Interface 4/5

With a new design integrated into it, Skype is now feature filled to the brim. The app itself is easier to use and carries a clean and bright interface. With just three options to choose from in the shape of Highlights, Chats, and Capture, you can quickly share a memory, chat with loved ones, or capture a moment with just a swipe. The tabs for your contacts and calling features are also easily accessible as is the Add button which helps you add new contacts, make new groups, or make new calls.

Features 5/5

With the new upgrade, you can now send photos, videos, GIFs, emojis, voice messages, and so much more with just a tap. Through the Add-Ins function, you can even share information from other apps without having to leave Skype. Have a lot of friends and don't enjoy messaging them individually? Create groups and stay connected with everyone important to you simultaneously. Make plans, play, or just share a funny story with your groups. With Skype calling, you will never have to worry about overspending - because voice and video calls are free. Now you can always stay close to family and friends. International call rates are also significantly cheaper on Skype. Using the Capture button, you will never miss an important, funny, adorable, or “once in a lifetime” moment. Just swipe, capture, and share. You can even add emoticons and stickers to them. Out on vacation? Use Highlights to share your favorite moments with friends and family.

The app brings together a perfect balance of simplicity and detailed functionality that very few apps can boast of.

Chatting with friends and family was never this easy and sharing important moments was never this simple. Calling functions are clear, precise, and uncomplicated. Just search for the contact you wish to connect with and hit call. Even when it comes to adding stickers, emojis, GIFs, and more to your conversations, Skype makes it so much more easier by adding it all with the chat itself. No more will you have to skip from Skype to another app to find movie tickets for your group. With Add-Ins, things just got so much more convenient.
