News / Mobile phones Skype for iPhone update brings T9 search dialling, chat picker and pre-release feedback program

Microsoft has started rolling out Skype v5.9 for iOS with some UI and functionality enhancements. Firstly, the update adds T9 search dialling to the dial pad, which will be appreciated by regular Skype users. 

In addition, the update also adds quick shortcuts to initiating an audio or video call from the chat picker window. Aside from these changes, Microsoft also announced a pre-release testing program where you will get to try out the upcoming versions of Skype in exchange for providing valuable feedback to the company.

As explained by Microsoft, the company is looking for “enthusiastic” Skype users for iOS to join the program. As a member they will be entitled to:

  • Trying out some new or upgraded features (don’t worry we’ll let you know what’s new) and tell us about your experience after doing so

  • Giving us feedback and suggestions on what you would like to see in the app in the future

  • Letting us know of any issues that you run into while using this previewed version

You can sign up for this limited pre-release program from here, but you should have a Microsoft/Skype account and be at least 18 years old.
