Microsoft news recap: new “lighter” version of Skype for older Android devices!

The new update will optimize the app for Android devices running versions 4.0.3 to 5.1.

This update is lighter on both disk and memory consumption, allowing for greater speed and better audio and video quality on lower end Android devices. This will result in better overall performance on older smartphones and also improve app’s performance in areas where there is a slow network connection.


The version promises quicker, slicker performance on handsets with 1GB of RAM or less. That’s because the phones come with fewer apps pre-installed, which makes the handsets less clogged.

The updated version of Skype for Android will be rolled out worldwide in the coming weeks.
