Skype for Android now lets you save video messages

Skype has updated its Android app to let you save video messages directly on your smartphone. The updated app is aimed to make it easy to keep track of all the precious moments that matter.

The updated Skype for Android (version 6.11) allows you to save video messages to the local storage on your smartphone by simply tapping a particular video thumbnail from the chats. There is ‘Save to gallery’ option that saves the video messages directly to your personal gallery. This comes as a competitive feature and makes Skype a strong competitor against Google Hangouts that available as a stock app on all Android devices.

Apart from the feature to let you save videos, the updated Skype provides you an option to manage conversations. You just need to long tap on a contact or chat in the Recents tab to delete, mark as read or mute notifications.

The updated Skype for Android additionally has an enhanced search functionality to let you search for conversation content apart from contacts and group names. The app also lets you share photos from your photo gallery right to a Skype group conversation. In addition, there is also an option to forward images and files from an existing group chat to another group or a single contact.

Besides, Skype has added upgraded Mojis that can be forwarded to any of your friends or a group. The Mojis that you forward to other contacts don’t automatically play again, but you can decide if you want to play them again by tapping on them.

The updated Skype for Android is now available for free download through Google Play Store. The new version comes months after Microsoft-owned Skype added ‘simplified flow’ for Android devices to offer a faster sign-in experience.
