Skype has just been updated to give users the option of selecting a “classic” UI instead of the new and improved tablet interface.
The previous update to Skype added many new features and a more tablet-optimized interface overall, including a portrait UI for calling, the curious part was the rest of the app was still locked in landscape mode. Skype is now letting tablet users go back to a phone-style UI in the settings if they prefer.
Until Skype figures out how to do a responsive tablet UI that changes appropriately for landscape and portrait use, it’s good to have this option.
You can download the update from the Play Store link here.
