An interesting point is that, if you did not have the app installed and install it now, just start it. It will ask you what mode you want to use. Also, if you select the “System settings” option, Skype will activate and deactivate the dark mode when we activate or deactivate it on our mobile. Obviously, this function is only in iOS 13 and Android 10.

In addition, the option to “Schedule a call“, is now available for chats. To do this, just open any chat, press the “+” button, select “Schedule call“, choose the date, time. And choose when you want to receive the notification and send it to the contact.
