Microsoft yesterday announced a major update to the Skype apps for iPhone, iPad and Mac that has brought out message drafts, split screen, bookmarks, a new way to share media, as well as other messaging improvements to your mobile and desktop devices.
It has become a brutal reality that some big tech companies have systems in place that allow for humans to listen in on some delicate information from customers. And now Microsoft has been caught up in the mix as well.
Aside from the removal of Highlights, Skype customers can expect many more updates over the next several months as the team continues to simplify and improve the core experiences around calling, chat and contacts.
Skype’s end-to-end encrypted Private Conversations protect your texts and calls against eavesdropping and improve privacy by hiding the contents of your chats in notifications. Here’s how to use this handy security-minded feature in Skype for iOS and macOS.
