Skype for Android has received Material Design and several new features
For a long time, Skype was probably one of the few application that adhered to the custom user interface on all platforms. To call this approach correct is unlikely, as each user is accustomed to a certain, uniform style of its OS. In Android, this is the philosophy of Material Design, and the sixth version of the Skype developers finally paid attention to the canons from Google.
The new version will definitely appeal to all the owners of “green robot”. Now the app doesn’t look alien, but rather fits perfectly into the system. The redesign touched on all the elements, including side menus, buttons and tabs. Appeared “floating” button, which opens the access options start the conversation: call, video call, chat. Appeared the icon of unread messages for each specific user and chat. Thus, to see the number of messages without even reading them.
On the official website, in addition to news about the redesign, it is also reported about a few new features. First, like the computer, the links in chat are now available to preview. Secondly, there was a custom of custom ringtones. Third, sharing photos became easier. We should not forget about the improved advanced search. Contacts and messages now are much faster.
Version 6.0 is currently available only to some users, but in the next few days she will get to the others. Watch for updates in the Play Store.
