Review from A Google User
New Skype... I'm not crazy about the new design, because it's not as handy and doesn't provide as good an oversight. What's worse, it takes forever to launch now. As previously it was ready in about 10 seconds, now it takes about a minute. An update with very negative effects... Very disappointing... After the last update, although it promised better performance, it still takes forever to load. It also seems to mess with the Wi-Fi, turning it off and unable to turn on again. Only after a reboot it works again.


What's New
Aggressive battery savings
Leave Skype running all day with no noticeable battery drain. To achieve these amazing savings, we’ve temporarily turned off push notification of group chat messages.
If you are a group chat user and want to continue receiving these notifications, go to Settings > Notifications, and check the "Sync group messages..." box.
