Skype update: for all smartphones
Social networks are an indispensable tool for many people today. Not only for the fact that it facilitates communication from different parts of the world, but also for its varied ways of transmitting a message and the possibility of having long distance video calls . That is why the Skype update allows to expand the doors of personal relationships.
For people who do not have such modern smartphones, now is the opportunity to install the new Skype update that allows the inclusion of this means of communication on their mobile devices , with the possibility of using their operating system.
Due to this new update, the latest versions of the program are compatible with cell phones that are not state-of-the-art. This was well received by the public since it opens the possibilities of extending the useful life of mid-range and low-end devices.
New Skype update brings more communication possibilities
The renowned multinational company Microsoft, announced the arrival of a new Skype update for the versions of Android operating system 4.0.3 and 5.1 , capable of storing and running this program with a limited processor and memory.
This update has a smaller version compared to the current system which is 126.96.36.199 , so its level of technical requirements decreases in RAM reducing the level of space required.
Since the traditional version consumes about 117 MB , this represented a problem for non-state-of-the-art smartphones , since the storage capacity is limited, so that when installing Skype, 20% of the device's memory was occupied.
It is important to note that this new update is an opportunity for traditional users who have inexpensive devices, since they will be able to enjoy all the possibilities that this program has to offer to the public, taking into account real-time video calls, which have been greater attractive from always, to the use of animated emoticons with new features in its design.
Taking into account that low and mid-range phones usually have 1GB of RAM , this update achieves the possibility of occupying a small space within the mobile device.
However, it is not surprising that some functions are limited within these versions for past models, since the capacity to process information is not so advanced; the screen in the background will not be an option for these devices, so animated gifs can not be viewed.
The fact of sharing a certain file is another factor that this update does not contemplate, at least, not in the traditional way to which it is accustomed, for example: it will not be possible to attach data as documents with excessive weight, likewise the transmission of videos on the platform, since it is an element that consumes a large amount of memory.
It is important to mention that, during this launch period, some phones are in evaluation periods due to their operation in internal systems, so that in certain cases, it is possible that some actions are not adapted correctly, in this new version, although it is Subject to possible changes in the future.
Skype video calls with this type of update, image fluency and emoticon projection will not be instantaneous, since the graphic level is little advanced compared to high-end smartphones.
All users of this platform who previously had an account, will be able to synchronize their information in this new version, so that no data is left out. This support system was a factor that consumers did not let go because it gave them the opportunity to keep their previous contacts and continue with their session of the last account.
The Microsoft company stated that consumers of the Insider version will be able to make direct use of this new Skype modality, so that the program will be easier to download and the synchronization will be faster.
Advantages of this new version
Its use is still fast and efficient despite being installed on older devices. This factor is important to emphasize, since despite running on a smartphone version that is not the latest generation, the program retains its usual quality.
The quality of audio and video are constant, so communication options increase considerably.
Its use is still easy and accessible for all public, so that, when installed on any mobile device, this version does not modify its systematic structure.
Anyway, this new Skype update opens the doors to new communication possibilities in other devices. The company through this new version includes users who previously could not install the program because of the limitation in its memory.
