The app has a clean new look, and puts contacts and communications channels to each contact in an easily-accessible format where users can tap to chat. “When you tap or swipe over to the Contacts of Favorites tabs, tapping on a person brings you right into a messaging window so you can start a conversation. And from there video calls, voice calls and everything else are just one tap away,” Snyder wrote.
The broad changes arrive with the new Skype for Android 4.0, which is being called Android 4.0, and recognises the importance of the Skype platform on mobile devices, with Snyder also confirming that Skype for Android has seen 100 million Android installs.
If you have an Android handset or tablet, you may have noticed that Skype updated. That’s because Microsoft updated with Skype for Android 4.0. The makeover is modeled somewhat after the new Skype app,but pulls in elements from Windows Phone 8’s modern UI with a much more graphical interface.
