iOS users will be happy to know that Skype for iOS has an update to release. If you want the new update, all you have to do is head on over to Apple´s App store and check for the update. The update will bring few UI enhancements. In the new beta program that Microsoft has launched, you will be able to try our new versions of Skype before they are available for everyone.
Microsoft wants you to try out the new versions of Skype, but they will ask you not to publicly talk about it, if you want to give it a try, you can signup here. You are very welcomed to give Microsoft all the feed back you want, so that way they can correct all the bugs that version might have.
