For a second release in a row, Skype for Android is focused on improving the experience for tablets. With version 4.5, we’re bringing two totally new features to our tablet users, as well as other improvements for all Android users.
We’re very proud to share our first tablet breakthrough with you: Skype is the first Android application to offer a picture in picture window that lets you see your video call even when you switch away to other applications. In the spirit of wanting to provide a common Skype experience across as many OSes as possible, our Android team sought out a way to develop an experience similar to Windows 8′s Snap View, but with an Android twist. Now you can multitask while you’re on Skype video calls, as well as audio calls.
