Skype For Android Updated With A Refreshed Look And More

Skype For Android

Microsoft yesterday released Skype 5.6 for Android with a bunch of visual refreshes to make Skype even more beautiful to look at and even easier to use.

See more chats at a glance

When you have multiple chats going at the same time, it could be challenging to follow along. In Skype 5.6 for Android, we’ve updated the app to let you see more chats on the Recent tab. Now a quick glance allows you to catch up on more conversations, and you can easily jump in to start chatting.

See friends’ online status with lovely round avatars

In addition, we’ve made updates so you can easily see which of your friends are online, no matter where you are in the app. We have also polished and unified the avatar pictures, giving the app a simpler and more consistent look and feel.

See chat messages more clearly

Within each chat, you’ll notice that we adjusted the color of chat bubbles to make the text pop more. Now, not only can you read messages with added clarity, you’ll find it easier to tell what you said from what everyone else said. You’ll find this update particularly helpful if you have group chats with lots of participants.

Update it here from Google Play Store.
