Microsoft updates Skype for Android, now easier to sign out

Skype for Android

After recently revealing Skype’s future roadmap, Microsoft had rolled out an update to the Skype app for Android. Today, Microsoft has rolled out yet another update adding a minor fix and making it easier to sign out.

“We are launching a minor update to Skype for Android today to address some of the feedback we’ve received over the past week. We heard you loud and clear and want to provide you with the best experience possible when using the redesigned application,” Microsoft stated in an official blog post.

In the updated app, you can now sign out by hitting the menu key. Microsoft has also addressed a bug that was preventing using from going online or making/receiving calls. This issue was a result of some users setting their status to “offline” when upgrading from 3.2 to 4.0.

Microsoft has also enabled video for devices as well as improved dialog translations for Russian, Brazilian Portuguese and Traditional Chinese. Microsoft recently revealed that there are over 100 million users using Skype on Android. You can hit the download link below to snag the updated app.
