We have seen a number of people take to the Google Play Store to ask how they can use Skype 6.4 on their Android Wear devices. We have been waiting for this feature for a while, and the increase in these queries is because you are now able to better Manage Conversations from your Android Wear smartwatch.
The new Skype update for Android now gives you greater control, as you can stay on top of your conversations for those friends of most importance. You will be notified when a message comes in, which you can also read from your Android Wear product.
You can also use voice to text, which is done by speaking into your compatible Android wearable, which includes the ASUS ZenWatch, Huawei Watch, Moto 360, and the LG Watch Urbane.
For those of you unable to answer an incoming message, you can select one of the pre-written answers, or to make it more fun, draw on the watch face in order to respond with an emoji.
You can also manage audio and video calls, more details of which can be found on the Google Play Store. One thing is certain, this Skype app for Android has now got a whole lot better, and so can compete with some of those comparable Apple Watch features. However, for the best way on how to work these new features, then please watch the video embedded below.
