Skype rolls out iPhone app update, re-introduces voice-message support

Microsoft has released v5.2 of the iPhone version of its Skype app. Users can now receive recorded messages from when they are offline within a conversation stream, and it can be listened to directly. User profiles can be viewed from one's contacts, displaying status, username, location and more. Additionally, participants can be added to existing conversations through the main menu on the bottom right-hand side. Skype v5.2 is free to download through iTunes.



Google Play Music for iOS adds gapless playback, downloading subscribed playlists

Google has begun to roll out an update for the iOS version of its Play Music app, making the latest release v1.3. The music streaming app now includes support for gapless playback, so that there is no pause between the end of one song and the beginning of another. Subscribed playlists can now be downloaded as to not require a data connection later, and all downloaded music can be viewed in a single interface format. Available through iTunes, Google's Play Music requires iOS 7 or later.
