The last time we heard from Skype, it was back in October when they introduced a fresh new UI for tablets. Today, Microsoft is going a step further, giving Android tablet users the single best feature to date: picture-in-picture video calling.
New for Skype 4.5 — now available on Google Play — the app is now able to run on top of other apps, continuing a video call in a popup window no matter what you may be doing on your tablet. Skype calls it a first of its kind and brings their app that much closer to its desktop counterpart.
No word if PIP will ever make its way to smartphones — this is tablet-only for now. The only question that remains is when the heck Hangouts will introduce similar functionality?
