Microsoft announced on Tuesday, 24, an update to its Skype for Android application. There is good and bad news for users of the service on the Google platform: the good news is that the company promises greater stability in calls over Wi-Fi; The bad thing is that ads are coming to the app.
Advertising is not yet visible for now, but Skype confirms that users with a free account will start seeing them within a few weeks. Probably, customers who pay for the service should have an ad-free experience.
Advertisements aside, the Wi-Fi issue improves a service annoyance. Now the screen will remain lit when the user dials a number, which will prevent the connection from being disconnected and the connection terminated.
The update brings new languages to the application. There are 14 new languages supported by Skype: Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Lithuanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Romanian, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.
