Skype for Android 4.0 launches – ‘rebuilt from the ground up’
Messaging platform celebrates a hundred million Android installs with all-new app
Skype for Android is getting a major update today, bringing the app up to version 4.0 with a major redesign. The app, which Skype says recently passed 100 million installs, has been completely redesigned to be more consistent with other platforms’ versions. (That is to say it’s looking a lot more Windows 8-like as of this latest update.)
The new app features a cleaner “conversation-first” UI, putting greater emphasis on instant messaging. In addition, you can now tab through different areas of the app, and change tabs using swipe gestures. But the changes are apparently more than skin deep, as Skype says it’s been “rebuilt from the ground up” to be faster and more reliable.
The Microsoft-owned messaging platform promises further improvements to the Skype app for Android in the future. In the meantime, you can grab today’s update from the Google Play Store.
