    When Skype remastered Skype in version 5.0 to take on iOS 7's redesigned UI, the company seemed to remove voice-messaging from the app. It is unknown why the company decided to take out the popular feature, but the good news is the feature is back.

    The Microsoft-owned VoIP company released Skype 5.2 in users in the App Store. Version 5.2 brings back voice-messaging along with the ability to access contact profiles while adding friends to existing conversations.

    Via App Store update:

    • Voice message support: When you receive a new voice message from someone, it will show up in the conversation. To listen, just press play.
    • View contact profiles: Simply tap on any contact in your people list and then select profile from the “…” menu, and your contact’s mood message, Skype name, birthday, location and more will be available. Additionally, if you are in a 1 to 1 conversation, you can just tap on the contact name in the header to bring up their profile.
    • Add participants to existing conversations: Tap on the “…” menu in the bottom right corner of any conversation (1 to 1 or group), and you’ll be presented with a shiny new “add participants” option.
    Skype version 5.2 is now available in the App Store for all to update. "We are continuing to work on bringing you new features to further enhance your Skype on iPhone experience", said the company in a blog post. Since the 5.0 update, Skype is only available on devices running iOS 7.0 or later.
