Latest Skype update lets you save video messages

We all have used Skype in all it’s glory, be it on a computer, or, on our smartphones. So much that many a times it happens that instead of saying “Let’s make a video call”, we often say “Let’s Skype”. Of course we can send messages apart from making video calls, but Skype has been more popular for allowing us to make video calls.

Now you can save Skype videos on your phone’s photo gallery

Now with the recent update, Skype 6.11 for Android lets you save the video messages you record or the ones you receive, on your phone’s photo gallery. This can be done by simply tapping on the video you want to save, and it will be saved in your phone’s gallery.

You can access this toolbar by long tapping on a contact or a chat

This is not the only new thing, the 6.11 update for Android also brings in some other handy features as well. Let’s take a look at other new features.

New features in Skype 6.11 update for Android:

  • Manage Conversations: This feature lets you delete a chat, mark it as read, or mute notifications. It can be done by long tapping on a contact or a chat in the Recents tab which will bring up a toolbar allowing you to manage conversations.
  • Save Video Messages: Lets you save video messages on your phone’s photo gallery, be those the ones who you have recorded, or the ones you have received.
  • Enhanced Search: You can search for conversation content, in addition to contacts and group names.
  • Share with groups: You can directly share photos from your photo gallery in a group conversation on Skype. You can also tap on photos and other files in a group chat to forward them to other contacts or groups.
  • Upgraded Mojis: Just tap on a Moji you received to forward it to another friend or to a group. These Mojis don’t automatically play again when you forward them, you can decide if you want to play it again by tapping on it.

If you already have Skype installed on your Android, you can get these features by updating your app to the latest version of 6.11 from Play Store. If you haven’t, you can download the app on your Android device from here.
