Skype for Android gets redesigned as app hits 100 million installs

Skype for Android gets an Windows Phoneinspired redesign, as app hits 100 million installs

Skype's starting off July with the release of a brand new version of its Android app. The overhauled 4.0 update borrows a good deal from the Microsoft-owned VoIP company's Windows 8 app, bringing conversations to the top. Log in, and you'll see recent chats -- from there, you can give one a tap to replay. You can also start a fresh one with a swipe and a tap on a contact name. Skype's promising a faster and more reliable app this time out, released as the Android version passes 100 million installs. Check out a celebratory video after the break.
