Skype for Android will now remember your login credentials after you log out
If you happen to use Skype on your Android device, a small yet notable update is headed your way. The new update, which brings the version number up to 5.5, will make it easier for you to sign back in to the app after you sign out.
Normally if you sign out of Skype and try to log back in, you’ll need to enter in both your username and password. This can get a little tedious at times, which is why the Skype team will now allow the app to remember your login credentials. If you don’t want Skype to remember your information for security purposes, you can always change this setting by heading to Settings>Privacy.
Microsoft says that in the next few weeks, Skype for Android will also get a web link preview feature that will let Android users see web previews when someone sends them a link in a chat.
The update to version 5.5 is now rolling out in the Play Store, so check out the link below to grab the latest version.
