Skype for Android now lets you save video messages

The Skype app for Android has just been updated with a handy option for users who would like to save and keep video messages of importance. The new version, available now, lets users save received video messages by tapping the thumbnail in the conversation view, and simply choosing the "Save to Gallery" option. Think of it as a way to hang on to video voicemails from loved ones or those with important details needed later.

The update for Android also includes several other refinements, such as a quick way to clean up conversations on the app's Recents tab. A long-press on a conversation now brings up a toolbar with buttons to delete the conversation, mark all its messages as read, or just mute its notifications.

New group sharing features include the ability to share images directly from the photo gallery to a Skype group conversation. Also, when viewing a group chat, tapping on images or files will give options to instantly forward them to another contact or group conversation. The same also goes for Mojis, Skype's custom emojis that play a GIF-like animation.

The updated Skype app is available to download from the Google Play store, and follows the previous update which introduced filters for video messages. No word from Microsoft on when the video message sharing option will come to the iOS app.
