An update for Skype arrived on Google Play today and it is a very small one indeed. Apart from the all too common “bug fixes and improvements” that you see in pretty much every update of every app ever, the only other change included is the ability to send photos to your contacts even when they are offline.
Although photo messaging is nothing new on Skype, the Android version somehow did not include offline sending of photos. Any photos you send from now on will be loaded into the server and will be opened whenever the recipient connects again. Images can either be uploaded from your device’s gallery or straight from the camera in case you want to quickly capture and share something with your friends.
And that is all! Grab the updated Skype 5.2 app on Google Play today and enjoy your offline photo sending.
