Skype Gains ‘Interactive Notifications’ For Audio/Video Calls On iPhone

Joining the growing list of apps that are now updating with full support for iOS 8, the official iPhone client for Microsoft’s VoIP (voice over IP) service – Skype – has gained all new “Interactive Notifications” in its latest version.

Taking advantage of iOS 8‘s ‘actionable notifications’ feature, the new support will now see users able to manage calls and messages from their iPhone’s lock screen, as well as being able to answer an incoming call or reply to an incoming message from the app’s banner notifications, and from within iOS Notification Center.
