Microsoft updates Skype for Android with important security improvements
Microsoft is bringing additional improvements to its Skype app on Android devices, and today's update focuses on security improvements and some under-the-hood enhancements. Speaking of improvements, the private conversations in Skype are now better-protected thanks to the end-to-end encryption for conversations with friends and family.

The official changelog also mentions some improvements to Bluetooth, so if you've had issues with this particular feature, then you should notice some changes on the positive side. As mentioned earlier, the update also implements some stability and reliability improvements that should make Skype smoother and faster on Android devices.

This isn't a major update that Microsoft is making available to Android users, but it's clear that the company recognizes the importance of providing a high level of security during Skype conversations, hence the current update.
