Gone are the days when you and your contacts need to be online at the same time for you to share photos using Skype. With this update, you can now send photos to your Skype contacts at a time that’s convenient for you, regardless of your contacts’ online status. When they are back on Skype, photos you shared show up beautifully inline in the chat history, whether or not you’re online – allowing you to easily carry on the conversation.

Apart from photo sharing with offline contacts, this update allows Skype notifications to be opened directly from the notifications. The update also brings picture-in-picture capabilities to Android. This means that you can continue video chatting while doing other things on the phone such as browsing the web, checking e-mail and much more.

The update also improves call quality on Skype. This is especially important with low bandwidth situations.
