Microsoft has released a new version for the Skype Preview on the Android platform – 8.29.76. The latest update brings a couple of new features to the table. First up, you can make Skype calls on your smartphone and record them right within the app. It’s handy for people relying on third-party apps for call recording facility before their functionality was removed by the Android Pie update.
Second is SMS messaging. You can choose two options for SMS: You can now use Skype SMS to send and receive text messages on your Skype account using Skype Credit.
The second option is to send SMS messages using “SMS Connect” which will set your default SMS app to Skype and allow you to send and receive messages on your Desktop via the Skype app.
You can check out the Skype Preview for both iOS and Android now.
