Back in February when Nokia X devices were first announced for first time, Microsoft Skype team announced a modified version of Skype for Android that will run on Nokia X devices. It provided all the basic Skype features you can expect from a Skype mobile client.
- Always be reachable: You can feel confident to leave Skype running in the background as we’ve designed the app to have only a very small impact on battery life. Call waiting is also available for Skype calls, and switching from a Skype call to a phone call is simple.
- Reach anyone, anywhere: Skype for Android complements the family of platforms on which you can enjoy Skype. Android users can connect with people they care about most on any device with Skype installed – PCs, Surface, Windows Phone, iPhones, iPads, Kindle Fires, Xbox Ones, Androids, Macs and even TVs.
- Make calls the way you want them: During your Skype call you can now easily navigate from landscape to portrait view and toggle between front and back cameras.
Today, Microsoft updated the Skype client for Nokia X, Nokia X+, Nokia XL and Nokia X2 and it is also available in the Nokia Store now. The new version of Skype brings significant battery and call quality improvements, full support for cloud-based 1:1 and group chats (meaning you can message your friends even if they are not online) and better video messaging. If you’re using the pre-installed version of Skype on your Nokia X, Microsoft recommends you update to the latest version now in order to continue using Skype and make the most of the latest features.
