The latest update for Skype app for Android OS comes with new features that have been leaked weeks ago. According to MSPowerUser, the features that were previously teased are not major, but useful additions, which make the update worth installing on your mobile device.

For starters, Microsoft has tweaked the interface of the Calls tab to make the user experience more seamless, introducing quick call options and a new dialer button. Also, more tweaks have been made to the Group Call UI, so now you will know who is speaking at the moment, as the feature indicates the active speaker at any given time.

Moreover, the new update for Android has fixed the audio issues from the previous version, which occurred when playing voice messages. In the change-log, Microsoft has stated that users are free to give them suggestions using the “Send Feedback” feature. So, if you have any idea that could help the developers improve the Android app, you should contact Microsoft immediately.

Last month, the company has announced that Skype will be modernized and it started with the improvements to the Calls tab, which became a section that shows calls made by users, such as Skype-to-Skype (audio or video), mobile and landline calls. The latest update of Skype for Android and of Skype for Business can be downloaded from the Google Play store, and if you’re interested in trying out the latter application, you should know that you can search for contacts on your device, without leaving the application.

The simple version of Skype allows users to make group voice and video calls with up to 25 people, to call any Skype user for free or mobiles and landlines at low rates, to send instant messages to up to 300 people, or to a group chat, to share photos, video messages, emoticons, Mojis and to add location in chat.
