It is morning here and we are looking forward two of the most popular Windows Phone apps getting new updates. They may not come under one category but definitely are the most popular apps on the Store. We are looking forward to Skype and Nokia Camera updates today. So, let's head down for full info on both of the updates.
Microsoft has updated the Skype app for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1, adding a new location sharing feature for the first time, among other new features.
Here's the change log for the new 2.22 version of the Skype Windows Phone app:
- Location Sharing- Click the '+' icon in a chat and select 'share location' to share your location with the people in your conversation
- Save Picture - To save a photo: tap the image to enlarge it, then tap for more menu options and select 'save photo'
- Notification Controls for Individual Conversations - In a chat, tap for more options and select 'notifications'. Here you can choose to turn notifications for that conversation on or off, so you're only notified about incoming messages if you want to be.
Microsoft has pushed out an update for its Nokia Camera app on Lumia Windows Phones. While the company has yet to change the name, it's positive to see the app be bumped to later versions to match the beta program. Looking across to the beta counterpart (which also sits on 18.104.22.168) reveals that this update contains the following bug fixes and minor improvements. Nothing major but an update all the same.
