Despite some backlash against the new mobile Skype clients, Microsoft this week is pushing forward. On top of that, the developers have added even more functions to Skype for Android and iOS. "We want you to know we've been listening, updating, and responding to your feedback".

You can download or update Skype for Windows 10 from the Windows Store here. I'm curious now if the feedback to the mobile apps has changed any plans. Some other fixes for notifications and multi-tasking while in a call have been included in the update too.

Microsoft is also restoring the old status display on Skype's messaging home screen, so you can now see who's online when you open the app.

"The goal for this next generation of Skype is to bring the people in your world closer together than ever before", the Skype team continues.

While Skype has yet to confirm exact dates for when these new and reintroduced features will become available, the Skype Android app on the Google Play Store is listing an update dated July 14.

By simply tapping on the reaction icon next to any message or video call, you can now easily express how you feel at any time. Now, you can now access your profile, start new conversations, access the dial pad and more from above your recent conversations.

All users will be getting direct sharing features as Skype will now be plugging into the WIndows, iOS, and Android sharing intent system so users can share content like photos, contacts and more directly to Skype.
