BERLIN (dpa) – The latest version of Skype for Android devices allows users to share photos with contacts who are offline.
Another new feature in Skype 5.2 for Android means that even if smartphone users open other applications, they can continue their Skype video call in a small window.
There’s also an overhaul of Skype for iPhone (5.10) including an improved dialer and support for URIs.
These allow developers to use Skype’s messaging and calling infrastructure so that users can start calls and chats straight from a developer’s mobile app or mobile website without having to open the Skype app first.
Skype 5.10 for iOS and Skype 5.2 for Android are available free from the respective app stores.
