Remarkable features of Skype

Skype for Android

Developers of Skype for Android continue to please their "fans" and release more and more new versions of the free application. This time it’s about Skype for Android, which brings new features, fixes and improvements. In my opinion, the main innovations of this version are the ability to send files to group chats and optimize the application (especially a bug with a high CPU load).

Of course, it’s equally important to fix bugs, as well as functions such as start a call/chat using Android Wear devices, search for messages from a specific user, save video files in the local gallery, or update the design of the contacts list tab.
