One billion downloads of Skype for Android—thank you!

Today, Skype reached one billion downloads on the Google Play Store. Let’s repeat that:

One billion downloads!

Over the years, it’s been our mission to connect people—from wherever, whenever. Together, we’ve sent billions of messages, calls, and happy face emoticons—probably some sad ones, too. It’s sharing these special moments that make Skype one of a kind, and we’re so thankful that you’ve been with us along the way.

But just because we’ve reached this milestone doesn’t mean we’re going to stop.

We’ll continue to roll out creative new features and find ways to improve existing ones based on your feedback. And most important of all, we’ll continue to be your app for staying connected with the ones you care about most, every day.

So, thank you­—a billion times over—for using Skype. We wouldn’t be here without you.
