Today we’re pleased to release Skype 2.22 for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8, which brings location sharing to Skype for the first time! Location sharing lets you have an even better chat experience on the go. Seeing friends or family and want to tell them where to meet you? Simply use this new feature to send them a Bing map of your location, pinpointing exactly where you are.

Here’s the full list of new features in Skype 2.22 for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8:

  • 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.
