Microsoft is optimizing Skype for low-end Android phones

  Microsoft is optimizing Skype for low-end Android phones Microsoft is rolling out an updated version of Skype for Android, one that’s optimized for devices running older versions of the OS, providing better audio and video quality for lower-end devices. The new update will optimize the app for Android devices running versions 4.0.3 to 5.1. Microsoft says that this version “is lighter on both disk and memory consumption,” and that it’ll provide better audio and video for those devices, in addition to better performance when the connection isn’t so hot. The update will be rolled out worldwide in the coming weeks.

Nintendo Switch owners have a new system update awaiting them, and the release notes reveal what 5.0.0 is bringing along. This update also fixes the problem that was hiding some older play activity data, and it adds a notification to let you know when pre-ordered games have unlocked.

While previous updates have smoothed out some rough edges for transferring saves and assisting with voice chat, this one's highlight addition is the ability to suggest Nintendo Accounts based on your Twitter and Facebook friend lists (assuming you've linked them and are over 13 years old). There are also 24 new Arms and Kirby user icons, and if you purchase a game from your PC or phone it will start downloading onto the system faster, even if it's asleep.

This update also fixes the problem that was hiding some older play activity data, and it adds a notification to let you know when pre-ordered games have unlocked. For parents, the PIN entry now operates from the stick and buttons instead of using an on-screen keyboard, and specific titles can be whitelisted for play, outside of the restricted software settings.

Facebook Messenger Lite adds video chat

  Facebook Messenger Lite adds video chat Facebook’s Messenger Lite app for Android is getting video chat, adding the final feature the slimmed-down app needed to become a truly viable replacement for the full-featured Messenger. It’s an addition that more or less makes Messenger Lite the perfect Facebook Messenger app. Cutting away all the accumulated integrations and features that Facebook has tacked on over the years, Messenger Lite offers simple, easy messaging. In theory, Messenger Lite is designed for “people with older Android devices and/or slower internet connections,” but it’s increasingly looking like the best option for any Android users.
