Microsoft has just released Skype 6.20 for iOS devices to introduce several exciting improvements, including an option to find bots, but also enhanced notifications and chat settings. While the Windows Phone community is angry with Microsoft’s decision to pull Skype from WP 8.0 and 8.1, the company keeps working on improving non-Windows clients.

Bots are the next best thing at Microsoft, and after announcing them at Build earlier this year, the company is now working hard to make them better. This new version of Skype comes with a new option that allows users to quickly find bots on iOS devices to start a conversation from the main screen.

“You’ll notice that in this release we’ve added a bot icon to the ‘Recents’ header, which makes discovering bots really simple. Just tap the icon to open the list of Skype Bots you can start chatting to. We’ve also made it possible to favorite a bot, so you can always find it at the top of your Skype contact list,” Microsoft has explained in an announcement today.

Additionally, starting with version 6.20, Skype for iOS also comes with better notifications, as the team focused specifically on improving their reliability. Furthermore, muted conversation will no longer appear in your unread message count while the voice messaging experience has received several goodies too.

Just like always, the new update is available in the iOS App Store, and everyone can download it right away to see all the aforementioned improvements in action.
