With latest update they brought back one of the old feature for iPhones. The ability to post “Mood messages” is now back. “Mood messages” is different from the users status which tells your contacts that you are available, or away, or busy, or away etc. It’s like that tagline we have in WhatsApp. When Microsoft revamped the Skype app this feature wasn’t available, But now it’s back.

Furthermore, the messages now shows with time stamp (date and time). The “Dates in chat” allows you to see when messages were sent or received in chat. They also improved the sign in experience and fixed the notification bug. Now user will receive a notification of message during the Skype call.
