Remarkable features of Skype

Skype for Android

The Skype for Android received two new features that help users to interact with Microsoft Office applications. One of them allows to open the received documents Word, Excel spreadsheets or PowerPoint presentations directly from a chat Skype — enough just to touch the file and it will opened in the appropriate application. The second function added to Skype for Android, is designed to create events in the calendar, if you want that the application reminds us, whom and when we should call him via Skype.

Please note that to use these functions, on your device must be installed appropriate applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. All of these applications are free and you can download them and install from the Play Store.
