Skype for Android receives update to version 6.11, allows you to save video messages and more
Version 6.11 of Skype for Android is currently rolling out. Among the major changes, you can now save a video message that you make, or one that you receive. All that is required is for you to tap on the video, and it will be stored in your photo gallery. Speaking of your photo gallery, you can now share photos from the gallery to a Skype group conversation. Tapping on an image or file while in a group will allow you to forward your content to another Skype group.

The update will allow you to access a toolbar to delete a chat, mark it as read, or mute notifications. To open the toolbar, you simply long-press on a contact or a chat. The new enhanced search allows you to look for content from a conversation, in addition to the usual search for contacts and the names of your groups.

After you update the app, you will be able to send a Moji to a friend or a group by tapping on it. It won't automatically play again when you forward the Moji, but by tapping on it you will have the ability to control whether or not it will be animated immediately when your friends receive it.

If you already have Skype on your Android phone, you can look for the update by going to the Google Play Store and heading to "My apps." If you don't have Skype loaded on your Android phone, click on the sourcelink to install it now, with the update already included.
