Remarkable features of Skype

Skype for Android

The Skype for Android application has been updated and brings 2 new functions. One of them is the ability to create and send holiday video cards to Skype contacts (you can share them not only over Skype, but also the social networks or e-mail). The second function — send video messages in group chats. It works as well as sending video messages to single contact — click on the corresponding icon, record a video and send it, while recipients can view it any time they want.

In addition to these functions, with Skype for Android has become easier to invite new contacts to a group chat using unique URLs. And of course, New Year's emoticons, a list of which can be found at Skype Emoticons page.
