Latest Skype for Android update brings dark theme to the app

Skype has recently integrated PayPal in its iOS and Android app, providing in-app mobile payments to users. The app has now received another update for Android devices bringing different theme options and more.

The first major change in this update is the light and dark themes option, which is different from the previously available chat themes. While chat themes change the look of the chats only, the light and dark themes change the look of entire UI of the app. As the name suggests, the dark theme gives the app a sleek blackish dark look to the app and the light theme, which was the only one available until now, enables a clean white UI of the app.

The update also brings back the activity indicators to the app, which let the users know the availability of their contacts by showing a small green icon on the chats of online contacts. Moreover, the ability to sort the chats by recent, active or unread is also added to the app.

The complete changelog of the app is as follows:

  • New themes - choose between light and dark themes.
  • Activity indicators - see who's currently active in your Chats list.
  • Reorder your chats - sort your chats by recent, unread or active.
  • General performance and reliability improvements.

Interested folks can download the updated app from Google Play Store.
