As we are sure everyone already knows by now, Skype is the worlds’ most popular audio/video calling app available for free. This is a cross-platform app which means that Skype is available to install on multiple operating systems, including Google’s Android smartphones. Talking about the Android version of Skype, we have some great news to share with Android fans. The developers of Skype have just released a brand-new update and today we are going to cover everything there is to know about it.
One of the reasons why Skype has managed to become the world’s most popular audio/video calling app is because it’s always improving. The developers who are in charge of Skype are constantly working on new software tweaks and bug fixes that are designed specially to improve the overall performances of Skype.
Nonetheless, the latest update for Skype sports the 188.8.131.52 version number and it is being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels right now. However, there is an alternative way to download the new update. The developers have also released it in the form of APK (Android Package Kit) which means that all Android smartphone users can manually download and install the update on their smartphones, thus being able to avoid having to wait for it to arrive via OTA channels.
Improved Software Reliability
The new update for Skype which changes the app’s version number to 184.108.40.206 is a maintenance update. What this means is that instead of bringing any new features, the update aims to enhance the overall software stability of Skype and it does this by introducing new bug fixes. With that said, we are advising all Skype users to download the new update as soon as possible because it will take Skype’s performances to the next level.
