Available for iPhone, iPad, Android 6+, and Android Tablets
Over the past few months we've been working to improve the Skype calling experience on mobile devices. Today, we are proud to release these new changes and improvements to you, our Skype Insiders! With just one tap you can dismiss all of the call controls and fully experience the most essential Skype feature: a clear video call without any obstructions. This makes having a video call on the go as close an experience to the ones you have on your desktop or laptop - minimal distractions and a clear view of everyone on the call with you.
Don't worry, with just a single tap, the controls you need the most are front and center, and everything else is just a simple tab away in the newly redesigned "..." menu. This new menu allows you to access all our useful features, like call recording and subtitles, all while keeping your video call simple and clutter free.
With this update, you will see that the speaker and audio device button is now in the upper right, next to your own video; this makes it easy for one handed audio device switching while on the go. Your video preview also got an update of it's own. We've made it bigger in one-to-one video calls, so you can see yourself better - especially on larger screened mobile devices.
Please let us know what you think of the new mobile call experience!
