Skype for Android is getting an update to version 6.4 this evening, bringing along with it some much-needed integration with Android Wear. With this latest update, users will now be able to manage their conversations on their Android Wear watch by responding to chats with voice-to-text, accepting or declining incoming calls and more. Here's the skinny on all that's new:

  • Messaging - Get notifications and view messages on your Android Wear device.
  • Reply - Quickly respond to messages by speaking to your wrist, sending emojis, or choosing a pre-written response.
  • Calls - Accept or decline calls, mute ongoing conversations, or hang up on your Android Wear device.
