Skype For iOS Gets Free & Unlimited Video Messaging, More Improvements

Skype-iPhone-5

The official Skype apps for iOS have been updated today to add free and unlimited video messaging, which previously required a $4.99 per month Skype Premium subscription. The updates also bring a number of other improvements to things like photo sharing and call stability.

Skype introduced its new video messaging feature to iOS earlier this month, and at the time, users could send up to 20 video messages for free. Once they hit that limit, however, they needed a Skype Premium subscription at $4.99 a month to send more.

But with today’s update, that’s no longer the case. Video messaging is now free and unlimited for all. Other improvements in these updates include:

  • Audio and video call stability improvements on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPad
  • Share photos more reliably
  • Improved accessibility for video messaging
  • General fixes and improvements

The Skype for iPhone and Skype for iPad apps are available to download from the App Store now.
