After gaining support for payment services through PayPal, Microsoft's Skype has updated its Android app to introduce a bunch of new features that include new chat themes, chat reordering, activity indicators, and stability improvements. The new Skype version 8.3 is now available to download via Google Play.

Among the new updates, the addition of new chat themes will bring some change to the existing blue-white colour layout in the Skype app for Android. You can now choose between Light and Dark themes on Skype, where the former is designed for the users who prefer a clean white UI, and the latter is for those who don’t want their eyes to get hurt while using the app at night. Also new are the activity indicators and chat reordering, which will let users know about the availability of their Skype friends in the Chats list through a green dot indicating the online status, along with the ability to rearrange and sort the chats by recent, unread, or active.

Skype has also received some stability and performance improvements with this update, as mentioned in its changelog Google Play. As we said, the Skype v8.3 is available to download for Android right now, however its iOS counterpart has not received the update yet.

Recently, Skype introduced Send Money feature on its platform using PayPal accounts. The feature is available on the latest version of Skype on both Android and iOS platforms in 22 countries initially. In India, Skype recently received the integration for identity verification via Aadhaar, India's own biometric-based identity service for citizens. The Aadhaar integration was rolled out for Skype Lite, an app especially designed for India, which lets users identify themselves on request during video calls using their Aadhaar.
