Skype Updates iOS App With Bluetooth Support and Advertising

Bluetooth headsets are now supported on select devices, and video has been improved with image stabilization, but these enhancements will cost you: the apps now display ads for non-paying users.

Skype has updated its iPhone and iPad apps, introducing some new features. Bluetooth headsets are now supported on select devices, and video has been improved with image stabilization, but these enhancements will cost you: the apps now display ads for non-paying users.

Ads were also introduced by Skype in its most recent beta version of the Skype for Mac client. The ads in all cases are only seen by users who don’t have a Skype account with active Skype Credit, subscription calling or a Premium plan. Skype is clearly looking to monetize the activity of users from whom it isn’t directly collecting any revenue, and at least it isn’t introducing ads without adding any useful features that appeal to end users.
