Skype is now totally un-Skype now. Not single hint towards what it was earlier.

since they already have a different platform for corporates, i guess they decided to cater to consumer market which is now focused more on snapchat like hip apps. launching a new platform would have resulted in a platform that few people used so i guess it made sense to use skype to target snapchat as it already has a customer base and as long as basic features work, it should retain most of those users. though i do not see how it would take users away from snapchat or whatsapp or messenger. google tried with allo and it has largely been a failure on expected lines.

Skype and PayPal team up with new Send Money feature | Skype Blog

At Skype, we work to make your life easier and more efficient. That’s why we developed Send Money, a Skype feature that allows you to transfer funds via the latest Skype mobile app while you’re in the middle of a conversation using PayPal.

Questions like “Can I reimburse you for those movie tickets?” or “What do I owe you for Mom’s gift?” no longer require switching from Skype to your browser or banking app to start a payment process. Starting today, we’re rolling out the ability to send money with PayPal on Skype. Using your mobile phone while you’re chatting with friends or family, you can simply swipe right, tap Send Money, and complete the money transfer process.

The first time you use the Send Money feature, you’ll be asked to confirm your location. If the Send Money feature is available in your location, you will need to link your PayPal account to your Skype profile. PayPal handles the money transfers and usually within moments, your money is on its way.

Introducing Cortana in Skype—Microsoft’s intelligent assistant comes to your chat window | Skype Blogs

With Cortana’s in-context assistance, it’s easier to keep your conversations going by having Cortana suggest useful information based on your chat, like restaurant options or movie reviews. And if you’re in a time crunch? Cortana also suggests smart replies, allowing you to respond to any message quickly and easily—without typing a thing.
Cortana can also help you organize your day—no need to leave your conversations. Cortana can detect when you’re talking about scheduling events or things you have to do and will recommend setting up a reminder, which you will receive on all your devices that have Cortana enabled. So, whether you’re talking about weekend plans or an important work appointment, nothing will slip through the cracks.
In addition to being your ‘behind-the-scenes’ assistant, Cortana is also a contact in Skype. So now, you can have natural conversations in one-on-one chats with Cortana—just like you would with your friends, family, and coworkers. Get answers to your burning questions, like the name of the lead actor in your favorite movie or what the weather outlook is for the weekend. You can also ask Cortana to check your flight status, give you a stock quote, or suggest the best restaurants in your area. With Cortana at your disposal, every day can be a bit more productive—and a lot more fun.
