Skype is one of the most popular VoIP client available at the moment, not only for desktops, but for mobile devices as well. The folks at Skype have introduced a bunch of improvements in the past few weeks for different platforms, fixing bugs, introducing new features and mre.
Recently, the folks at Skype introduced a few new features to improve the chat experience on multiple devices that are running the application.
If you use Skype on multiple devices, it can be a difficult task to keep up with all the notifications as messaged read on one device were still shown as unread on the other. Thanks to the latest update and push notifications systems, Skype chats are synced across all Skype-enabled devices.
In addition, the folks at Skype have introduced a bunch of performance-related improvements, including improved battery life, startup times, and resume times. For mobile devices, the app now runs faster in the background as well as faster to start up, that is, improved app-switching.
There are not the only improvements, the company is working on more new enhancements and features that will be released in the coming months. When you’re logged in on multiple devices, let’s say a tablet and the PC, it can be annoying as you receive a notification on both of them when someone sends you a message. In the coming months, Skype will be able to detect the device you’re active on and display the notification there.
And, in the coming months, we’ll continue to enhance your chat experience such that you’ll only receive notifications on the device you’re actively using. For example, if you’re on your tablet, then you’ll only see the notification there and additional notifications won’t double (or triple) up on your other devices. Also, your Favorites contact list will “roam” and sync across all of your Skype-enabled devices.
Update the Skype app on all your devices to enjoy the improved chat experience.
