Microsoft has announced a new software update for Skype on the iPhone, the update will come in the form of Skype 5.9.
The Skype 5.9 update for the iPhone will bring a range of new features to the handset and this will include a number of changes to the user interface and more.
In Skype 5.9 for iPhone, when you start typing a phone number in the dial pad, Skype will suggest contacts with matching phone numbers, making it faster to find who you want to talk to.
We’ve also updated the new chat picker to make starting conversations easier. Once you’ve chosen who you want to talk to, tap the phone or video icon at the top to start your call. (To open the chat picker, tap on the message icon on the bottom navigation bar when in the recents, favorites or people view.)
