Skype for Android will soon receive Material Design

Recently, Microsoft has added a lower navigation bar in Skype for iOS, and now developers are preparing to update the interface of Android-applications in the style of Material Design.

What's new?


In Skype, a floating button for quick access to important functions is returned, which was in the application before the large-scale redesign. On Android, you will also see a panel at the bottom of the screen. The camera tabs and the unnecessary "Moments" are placed on the right, so after the update they will be less flickering before your eyes. For complete happiness there is not enough list of contacts near the chat rooms - they were for some reason left at the very end.

Another small change is that by clicking on the button for creating a new chat in Skype for Andorid, icons for quick group creation, bots searching and adding contacts will be displayed.

When to expect?

Microsoft will soon update the test version of the client for insiders - Skype Preview. It can be downloaded from the Google Play store, but the company does not guarantee stable operation. In the main service application, new functions will appear later.
