This week Skype updated the iOS version of the Skype app and today we have an updated Android version of the app. The new version keeps the screen on while your call is connecting where as in past power saving could have turned off the screen so you could miss connection issues. Also in this build are support for 14 additional languages and other fixes and improvements.
The app is free from the Google Play Store.
• Your screen will remain active while your call is connecting. Once the call has started, everything will work normally.
• Added support for 14 additional languages
• A number of general fixes and improvements.
