You can now send money using Skype and set the interface to dark mode
Microsoft has pushed some feature updates to their Android and iOS apps over two rapid updates. The largest new feature is the new PayPal integration which allows users to make payments directly to their contacts PayPal accounts. The example given by Microsoft is that of friends arranging to see a movie, and while one buys the tickets, the others can send the money for their ticket immediately to the linked PayPal account of the first friend.
PayPal will charge their standard fees for this service, and the integration is available in 22 countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
Another new feature is dark mode on Android handsets. Dark mode has been a feature of the desktop app for a while now, and it is a welcome addition to the Android app. Users who had ROMs with dark themes won't have a jarring transition to white when opening skype, and the dark option is also a big positive for those who like to chat on skype at night.
