Skype for Android gets updated with support for heads up notifications


Microsoft recently released a new update for the Skype app for Android. While the latest update doesn’t come with a changelog, the folks over at Android Police are reporting that the latest update brings support for heads-up notifications. With the heads-up notifications, you’ll be able to interact with the notifications while you’re using another app — without even opening the Skype app.

Alongside the new heads-up notifications support, the update also packs support for a new monochromatic ticker icon, which looks pretty cool. If you’re an Android user, you can get the Skype for Android app from the Google Play Store here. Alternatively, you can scan the QR Code from the following box to directly open the app on your phone:
