Skype now optimized for devices running Android 4.0.3 and up

Microsoft has in a blog post yesterday, announced that it will be releasing a new version of Skype with optimizations for devices that still runs on Android 4.0.3 to 5.1. This means that if you are still on those platforms, you are not forgotten.

Microsoft gave an explicit reason for bringing on the new Skype app, saying “it’s lighter on both disk and memory consumption, allowing for greater speed and better audio and video quality on lower end Android devices, as well as increased performance in challenging network conditions”.
