Whether you’re looking to stay in touch with your grandma or maintain a steady working relationship through convenient communication tools, Skype is definitely a top solution for you. Initially released over 10 years ago as a desktop application that pioneered voice calls, Skype is now also getting with the times and has a mobile version available.

With the tech market rapidly shifting towards mobile devices, the addition of Skype’s mobile version to the array of communication apps already available is a very noteworthy perk to have.

Recently, the app was updated to version and brushes up on all its already up to par capabilities. As hard as it may be to believe, despite all the features already offered by Skype, you will still be able to feel a boost in performance once you upgrade to the latest version. The update is available not only as an over-the-air transfer but also in the form of an APK file. If the former solution is not available to you for whatever reason, you can always download the APK file and install it manually.

There is however one small detail you need to pay attention to. If you’ve never installed an app through its APK file, then you probably haven’t enabled the third party apps setting in your device. If you do that now, you’ll be able to install the APK for Skype

All you have to do to install the APK file is transfer it over to your phone’s internal storage then tap it to begin the installation process. Once that’s complete, you will be able to enjoy Skype’s latest update and all the enhancements that come along with it.

Some of the improved functionalities include voice and video calls, group chat conferences and overall bug fixing.
