Skype for Android version 5.2 update brings photo sharing with offline contacts

Skype update

The Skype app for Android is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family across the country. A big downside to using the app, though, is not being able to share photos with offline users. Not everyone can be online at all times, so this can be very frustrating. But in the update to version 5.2, Skype will now let you send pictures to both online and offline users. The Skype team explains:

With this update, you can now send photos to your Skype contacts at a time that’s convenient for you, regardless of your contacts’ online status. When they are back on Skype, photos you shared show up beautifully inline in the chat history, whether or not you’re online – allowing you to easily carry on the conversation.

In addition to the new photo sharing updates, conversations will now load much faster, especially when opened from a notification. Call quality is also getting some improvements for users with low bandwidth. The update to version 5.2 is rolling out in the Google Play Store as we speak, so head to the link below to grab the update.
