The new updates come with number of new features like bubble style chat design, animated emoticons, emoji support and many other things.

Let's take a quick view to the latest new features of Skype app below:
Participants Option: Now you can view and change display pictures of all group chats. Just use participant option in group chat and change the avatars.
Auto Scroll: Auto scroll feature of Skype was one of the bad features, but now Skype has disabled this feature in latest updates. Now chats will not auto scroll when new message will come in.
