Skype made its way to the Apple Watch earlier this year, and now Microsoft is bringing Skype to Android Wear today. The latest Skype 6.4 for Android update brings messaging, new Skype Mojis, and the ability to accept or decline calls on your wrist.
In the case you want to take a call, you can accept the call from the watch but then use Skype on your Android smartphone along with your microphone, headphones, or wireless Bluetooth speaker or headset in order to continue the conversation. The Watch app additionally lets you mute, hang up, pause or switch to another incoming call, as needed.
While managing calls might not be that useful, Microsoft has added the ability to respond to Skype messages from Android Wear. You can speak into your wrist, send Skype Mojis, or use a pre-written response to quickly message a Skype contact back. Managing calls simply lets you accept or decline, hang up, or mute an ongoing conversation. If you have an Android Wear watch then the latest update is available now in the Google Play Store.
