As part of Microsoft’s overhaul of Skype last year to push it from a VoIP client to more of an instant messenger, it added a new look along with features previously unavailable on mobile devices. Since then, the company has been trying to refine the experience in Skype on Android and iOS.

Version 8.15.0.4, Skype for Android comes with improved audio controls which lets users quickly switch between an earpiece, speaker, wired or Bluetooth devices during a call. This can provide users with more control over their calls right within the call UI.

Outlook version 2.2.102 now has a sidebar that provides quick access to all accounts and folders.

Microsoft continues to invest in Android and iOS. The software giant said it wants users to benefit from the full functionality no matter the platform, and this is why updates release at such a fast pace.
