Skype for Android updated, brings new features for tablet users

Microsoft has decided to upgrade the famous video calling application Skype with some new features, and the version 4.5 is now available at the Google Play Store. There are crash and bug fixes for Nexus 5 and latest Samsung phones, but also there is some good news for tablet users.

As it’s mentioned on the Skype’s official blog, this version “is focused on improving the experience for tablets”, so for that, they updated the app with two new features. The first one is a picture-in-picture window for video and voice calls, means you see your video call even when you switch away to other applications. The second feature is detailed below:

We’ve also added a way for tablet users to quickly jump from one letter to another in your contact list. Just pinch your contact list to zoom out to an alphabet and tap on the letter (or number / symbol option) to jump to that section. It’s a whole lot faster than scrolling.

If you don’t have Skype, then you can download it from the Play Store by clicking the link below. Don’t forget to share your experience with us in the comment box below.
