Social networking and chatting site Skype has announced a number of new features and fixes for its android users this week. The most striking feature of status display on the home screen will be returning.
Some of the features are already updated while other are I the pipeline. The most important aspect is the reintroduction of some features that had been recently removed.
Last month Skype announced a major overhaul to the service, one which not only looked to improve the functionality, but also modernise the design. However, as part of that major update, some features were removed. One of the most notable features that disappeared was the ability to see when other Skype users were online.
The feature which enables to share content from other apps in Skype chats will be returning. Skype specifically notes that it has been listening to user feedback and the reintroduction of these features are a result of that listening.
Skype has confirmed that updates have enabled users to delete contacts and conversations.
While Skype has yet to confirm exact dates for when these new and reintroduced features will become available, the Skype Android app on the Google Play Store is listing an update dated July 14.
