Quite recently, Skype 2.24 was launched for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8, which brings drawing to Skype for the first time. Now, you can draw on a canvas, add funny touches to your photos or even draw some really fast routes on a map and share it with your family and friends!
To access the new Skype drawing tool in the WP app, all you need to do is tap the + symbol in a chat window, followed by ‘drawing’. Although, it looks like some smaller version of MS Paint, it is quite fun! I mean, who wouldn’t like drawing on Bing maps?
Also, the Skype app for Windows Phone gained HD screen support in its recent update. Now you can log into Skype with your native Skype account instead of using your Microsoft account for the purpose. However, Skype still recommends using the Microsoft Account to have improved privacy, security and password glory. Another improvement is that Skype has worked to make the Windows Phone 8.1 app resume faster than before to gain access your conversations quickly.
