Skype for Android has reached a significant milestone by passing the 100 million install mark on Android devices and they have decided to celebrate by releasing version 4.0 of the app and bringing with it a completely redesigned UI.
Today we’re bringing 100 million of you a step further on our journey into the future. Last week we discussed how Skype’s Mobile Future demands a modern design that puts conversations first, focuses on quality & performance, and delivers a common set of experiences across multiple platforms and devices. Today, we’re excited to deliver in two of those areas with the all-new Skype for Android 4.0.
The app isn’t just a redesigned skin though, as the app has been completely rewritten from the ground up.
There is one thing however that has been bugging a few users. How do I sign out of Skype or find the settings? This seems to have been buried deeper into the UI and you need to go into your profile and then the sign out and settings options can be accessed from the menu.
Skype has promised further improvements over the coming months to assist with performance and hopefully they can address the above issue as well.
I was never a big user anyway, but I have since moved onto alternative such as Google hangouts.
What do you think of the new app and do you still use Skype? Let us know in the comments below.
