Skype 5.0 has improved group chat, better navigation, and improved notification sync across devices. The updated app has smoother scrolling and simplified navigation to make it easier to swipe between conversations, contact lists, and your favorites.

Group chats are easier to initiate with the updated app. Users can also send messages and photos to offline users and the content will be saved until they come back online. Synchronization between devices is also improved in the updated app with messages read on one platform marked as read on all others where Skype is installed. The app will roll out next week.
