Skype for Android now with calling to Messenger users

I would like to introduce to you new version of Skype for Android.

We are delighted to deliver to you:

  • Calling to Messenger users
    Now you can call everyone on Messenger straight from your Android device. Just pick the contact and call. The call will ring on their devices as a normal incoming call.
  • Phone view for 7” tablets

Based on the user feedback we have changed the Skype design for 7” tablets to use the same design as we have for the smartphones.

  • Performance improvements and bug fixes

Start downloading the new version now and let us know what you think about it by commenting what matters on our Support Network.
