If there’s thing blocking Skype‘s otherwise smooth road to success, it’s that upstarts like WhatsApp have fragmented the mobile userbase. Still, everyone knows, if you want to compete, you need to match the competition like-for-like on features. To that end, enter Skype for iOS version 4.1…
The update, released today, brings one new feature to the Skype app that WhatsApp’s always proffered: the ability to send and receive images on the fly on your iPhone or iPad, mid-chat.
It’s a seemingly simple addition, but it’s an important one for anyone who prefers to use VoIP and IM services over calling or texting.
The update also brings with it a speed boost and a decrease in power consumption. It’s available now for any device running iOS 4.3 and above.
