You cannot erase chat history and photos sent require you to log into a website to view them. Photos are stored on a website. This update is aweful. DO NOT update if you haven't yet.

I have the same problem! With the new version you can´t sidesweep in any directions to delete as it was before. when you try to do that now it only changes between "favourites" "people" and "latest"... I have tried everything but it doesn´t work!

HELP

Skype 5.0 for iPhone does not have the functionality to remove individual entries from the recent conversations. We are looking into bringing this back in a future update.

In a future update? How far in the future are we talking here? A week for a fix or something you'll get around to "sometime" in a future version? This is an unbelievable oversight on MS' part by not allowing the deletion of chat and call histories in the mobile app. Not to mention the ability to no longer edit the content of individual messages.

 

I guess from now on I'm not going to be so gung-ho to update Skype when an update is released. I should have learned my lesson from past upgrades of the desktop app. Granted, this version has a lot of great interface improvements but leaving out such a critical, fundamental function as clearing chat histories is completely ridiculous. Please fix this immediately.
