Hooray! Skype iPhone update lets you join group voice calls

The Skype app for iOS has been pushed out with some significant changes, all for the better. The app now lets you join voice calls from your iDevice. It also claims video and voice call quality improvements. FAQs are now built into the app, and the dial pad has been tweaked.

Skype is a free app, and is not universal, but both the iPhone and iPad versions have been updated. The Skype app requires iOS 5 or greater and is optimized for the iPhone 5.

Skype is one of the most popular communications apps for iOS, and the company claims 250 million users on all platforms worldwide. The app is free unless you want to call landlines, and then you can purchase time as an in-app extra.
