Skype for Android update brings calls and chats to your smartwatch

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Skype has announced that Skype 6.4 for Android, brings you new ways to manage conversations on Android Wear devices such as the Moto 360, Huawei Watch, LG Watch Urbane, or the ASUS ZenWatch.

With this latest update, users will now be able to manage their conversations on their Android Wear watch by responding to chats with voice-to-text, accepting or declining incoming calls and more.

Stay on top of conversations from people who matter the most
Get notified of and read new messages from your friends and family directly on your Android Wear device.

Respond to chats
Reply to messages directly from your Android Wear device. You can use voice-to-text by speaking to your wrist. Or, if you’re in a rush, you can select from a set of pre-written responses. You can even draw on the watch and respond with an emoji!

Manage audio and video calls
See who’s calling on your Android Wear device. Decline incoming calls from your wrist if you’re busy and can’t take a call at the moment. Or, accept incoming calls on your Android Wear device – and use Skype on your Android phone using the microphone, headphones, or a wireless Bluetooth speaker or headset.

While on a call, you can also use your Android Wear watch to mute, hang up, or pause and switch to another incoming call.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row seperator_indeed_locker=”” lk_t=”ism_template_1″ lk_io=”default” lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ lk_dt=”
