These are busy times in the fast-moving world of Skype apps — in the past week the Windows Phone version came out of beta, the PS Vita got its own client, and now the Android app has been updated to version 2.8.0.920. It's not a huge overhaul, but does come with a few notable changes: there's a refreshed chat interface, startup time is a little faster, and video rotation is now supported by a few more unspecified devices. As ever, the app is free and available from the Google Play Store.
