Do you ever receive a video message on Skype that you wished to keep it on your gallery? Now, Skype has launched an update version for Android which includes a new feature that allows users to save video messages that they wish to keep.
Several new and updated features are now included in Skype 6.11 for Android, which can be divided into two sets. One of them help users in keeping track of, and saving their special Skype moments and most important conversations. The second set is focused on making it easier to share media files with group conversations and contacts.
This new version of Skype app makes it easier for users to manage their conversations. In the Recents tab, you can now long tap on a contact or chat to bring up an all-new toolbar. This toolbar lets users mark as read, delete or mute notifications for that particular chat or contact
The search function now lets you find content from within conversations, not needing to limit the search by the contact or group names. A feature like this was rolled out to WhatsApp in the recent past, and is quite handy when you are searching for something specif (as an address or some other relevant piece of information), but don’t know which contact or group to look for.
Version 6.11 of the Skype app has also the ability to save video messages. Sometimes you record or receive memorable videos that you don’t want to lose. The updated app has made it simple to save those video memories just by tapping on the video and save it to your mobile’s gallery.
The second set of features just aid in sharing photos or videos in group conversations. Found something interesting while scrolling through your gallery? Now, you can directly share it from your gallery to a Skype group chat. Additionally, fowarding those files to a contact or a group just by tapping on the file.
Skype updated Android app also makes it easy to use Mojis, which are basically short clips from movies and TV shows. So the next time you receive a cool Moji from a friend or in a group chat, simply tap on it to send it to another group or contact. The Moji’s don’t automatically play again when you send them, but if you want to play again, just tap.
The last major update, which bumped the app version to 6.0 was launched back in September and introduced Material Design enhancements among other things.
