Skype today updated its iPhone app with a slew of new features and improvements based on user suggestions. You can download the new version now directly from Apple’s App Store. First off, the app now lets you save photos you received in chat to your camera roll as well as delete sent photos from a chat.

To perform either, press and hold the image for the options menu to appear. The Microsoft-owned company has also added avatars for all chats. This means you can see the images chosen for individuals as well as for groups. If they change on other platforms, Skype for iPhone will grab the latest avatar; they’re now finally being synced properly. Next, Skype is promising faster chat load times. In particular, when you receive a notification of a new instant message and tap it to open the app, the message will be there waiting for you.

That might seem like an obvious feature, but users were complaining that there were often delays. Finally, the people list filter (all contacts, Skype contacts, online contacts) has seen some user interface tweaks. It’s now easier to find the people list search and filter options, according to Skype, so it’s now faster to grab the person you want to chat with. All in all, this isn’t a major release, but given that it addresses some of the most common user suggestions, most iPhone users will want to upgrade.

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?
– After falling significantly in 2020, oil prices have returned to pre-pandemic levels
– The rise has been driven by OPEC+ production cuts and an improving economic climate
– Higher prices are likely to support a rebound in oil-producing emerging markets
– Further virus outbreaks or increased production would pose challenges to price stability

A combination of continued production cuts and an increase in economic activity has prompted oil prices to return to pre-pandemic levels – a factor that will be crucial to the recovery of major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Brent crude prices rose above $60 a barrel in early February, the first time they had exceeded pre-Covid-19 values. They have since continued to rise, going above $66 a barrel on February 24.

The ongoing increase in oil prices, which have soared by 75% since November and around 26% since the beginning of the year, marks a dramatic change from last year.

Following the closure of many national borders and the implementation of travel-related restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, demand for oil slumped globally.

In the wake of the Saudi-Russia price war in early 2020, Brent crude prices fell from around $60 a barrel in February that year to two-decade lows of $20 a barrel in late April, as supply increased and demand plummeted. The value of WTI crude – the main benchmark for oil in the US – fell to record lows of around $40 a barrel last year on the back of a lack of storage space.

While global demand for oil remains low, one factor credited with reversing the trend is the decision to make significant cuts to oil production, which subsequently tightened global supplies.
