Update to Skype for iPhone adds support for 3D Touch, filters for video messages and more
With the updated version of Skype, users can lightly tap on the screen to get a peek at a conversation that has recently taken place. A harder press will "pop" you into the conversation. Pressing down will also allow you to engage in a video chat. If someone sends you information during the video such as a picture, location, contact information or a URL, you can press lightly to get a quick peek at the info. A harder press will bring it up on the screen.
Even before you open the Skype app, 3D Touch comes into play when you touch the icon. Pressing hard on the Skype icon on your home screen will bring up a list of the most used features. That includes searching for contacts, accessing the dial pad, or starting a chat or call. Click on any of those selections and you will be taken to the appropriate location in an eyeblink.
The update also adds filters for video messages, allowing you to play around with your image when chatting via video. You can also hide your chat history from the Recent list, or just delete it altogether. Skype version 6.5 allows you to share one of your Skype contacts. All you need to do is open your contact list, select a name, and click on the 'tick' icon.
