Despite its super-short changelog, the latest version of Skype for Android has scored two major updates: better video quality and a new tablet interface. The VoIP provider claims you can now enjoy video chats with up to four times the resolution of older Skype versions, whether you're using a phone or a slate. When it comes to the layout, the fresh tablet UI that prominently displays latest chats and calls isn't exactly brand new -- Skype debuted it on smartphones in June, with the promise of bringing it to bigger screens in the future. Later this month, the new look will also make its way to Kindle Fire HD and HDX devices; there's no exact date just yet, but you'll find out as soon as we do.
