PDF Print E-mail

The official Skype client for Android that has been satisfying a majority of users for quite some time, just got even better with its latest update (v2.6) that, in addition to adding support for quite a few more devices, brings a new, more polished homescreen, the option to send photos, videos and other files to your Skype contacts, voicemail and battery enhancements, better video quality for Tegra devices, auto sign-in and a more user-friendly method to sign out of the app. Details to follow.


Apart from the new icons, you will also notice a new button in the top-right corner of the app’s homescreen. This button lets you sign out of the app with a single tap, without having to open the app menu (Menu > Sign out), as was required in previous versions.


You’ll find the new Send file option under the Actions tab on a contact’s screen. Tapping said option opens your device’s local storage, allowing you to share any file with the selected contact. Files received from other users can be found within the /sdcard/Download folder. The option to send files to your contacts is undoubtedly a handy addition, however, it would’ve been much better if this option had been integrated within the messenger interface as well. Lets hope the developers add said feature in future updates.

The link and QR code provided below will take you to the app’s Android Market page.
