Skype today announced a fairly major update for Android tablets. In addition to the updated layout, there's no an option to sign in and merge your Skype account with your Microsoft account (an offshoot of the Windows-maker buying Skype), improved audio quality, and a number of bugfixes in Skype 3.0.
The audio improvements are brought about by Skype's wideband audio codec, SILK, the company wrote in its official blog.
SILK was designed to capture the richness of human speech. It copes well with the often varying speeds of Internet connections, ensuring that the audio quality is always the best it can be.
There's a demo of SILK after the break.
