Online video chatting softwares are pretty popular these days and when it comes to Android devices in an App form, the charm is much more different. Skype, one of the most famous messaging, video calling and voice calling app has been recently announced to come up with a revamped form by evening today. Skype also announced the reaching of the glorious 100 million downloads.
Derek Snyder of Skype wrote, "Just recently, we reached a major milestone. Skype for Android is now installed on over 100 million phones worldwide. And we're so thankful - reaching such an achievement would be impossible without the support of our users, and we continue to put you and your needs at the heart of everything we do."
Skype is also releasing a new version of its official Android app in the form of version 4.0. The updated app now brings a Metro UI and the Skype for Android version now looks quite similar to the Windows Phone version of the app. This UI update to its app for Android is targeted to deliver a common set of experiences across multiple platforms and devices. The update includes a conversation-focused interface, improved quality and better performance, and will work on devices running on Android Ice Cream Sandwich as well. Metro-like UI also includes a rather clean listing of conversations and makes the interactions easier with single tap oriented navigation.
Commenting on the latest Skype update, Derek Snyder further wrote, "We've completely redesigned Skype for Android to be faster and easier - especially when you're trying to fire off a quick message. Everything is at your fingertips. As soon as you open the app, you'll notice the clean new look listing your recent conversations - just tap on one to catch up and reply,".
Reportedly, the company also mentioned about bringing more updates in the coming months to make Skype for Android devices more reliable, reachable, and mobile-friendly.
