Microsoft recently brought a new design for Skype to the iPhone and now the company has revealed that its Android app is also getting a new design.
The new Skype for Android will bring a new design and user interface to Android it will come with a new look and feel in line with Google’s material design.
“In Skype version 8.13 for iPhone, we launched a new design that brings back a bottom bar to streamline navigation and simplify access to Skype’s core features. During user testing, we shared this design along with the design that is currently in market with a variety of Android users.
The majority of Android users expressed preference for the version with a bottom bar. Based on this interest, we decided to run with this approach and created an experimental version of Skype for Android that:
• Adheres to Google’s Material Design guidelines for bottom bar navigation
• Brings back a contextual FAB for quick access to key actions
• Has an updated header & search icon to feel more at home on Android”
