Skype for Android is updated with a complete redesign

Skype has officially announced version 4.0 of its Android app that makes Skype unrecognizable, but in a good way. The application has been completely redesigned and rewritten from scratch, his style combines some design language “Modern UI” (Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8) with Android Holo elements.



Every bit of the application has been modified since the view chat conversations, the user profile pages, the page calls, and everything else that is sandwiched in between. Skype says that the application has been completely rewritten from scratch with a new code base. More to the point, the application should feel much faster, smoother and better .

This is the biggest update we’ve seen since the release of the original version 1.0 a few years ago. In addition to the redesign, we can enjoy the new version of the new video messaging capabilities.

Skype for Android 4.0 is available for download on Play Store starting today
