In today’s world, staying in touch with friends, family and even work has become easier than ever. And one of the most popular programs in this direction is Skype, even though it might have fallen into the background recently while other newer apps took the center stage. But Skype is still very much alive and kicking, and Microsoft actually recently released version 8.0 of the beloved program which is used by many due to the very fortunate combination of text, video and audio chat it provides.
And now Skype 8.0 is available for Android as well. You can find the new version of the app in the Google Play Store and download it right now. Microsoft has released an official statement about the new version of the app saying that they’ve rebuilt Skype “from the ground up”. One quick look at the app is all you need to realize that that’s very much true. While the app still keeps its major features and its focus on chatting and keeping people connected through all means, it also has a lot of cool new features that we hadn’t seen in it before, such as Stories.
Skype Stories are very interesting because they last an entire week, but also because their privacy level is much more customizable. All in all, the new Skype is fun new platform that keeps a lot of the elements that we loved it for in the last decade, but also introduces cool new elements that help it stay ahead of the times. So if you’re not on Skype yet, this is as best of a time as any to sign up for an account and start chatting and sharing your life with the people you love the most. Give it a try today and see what it’s all about.
