'Skype' is pretty much synonymous with 'video chat' — Skype, which Microsoft bought for $8.5 billion in 2012, has been downloaded over a billion times on smartphones alone, not including PCs and other gadgets. And yet, Skype itself hasn't gotten a major new feature or a significant redesign since 2006, when it first added video calling. Meanwhile, Facebook Messenger, a relative newcomer, boasts 1.2 billion users, while is hugely popular with iPhone and Mac users. 'We don't think Skype can rest on its legacy,' Skype corporate vice president Amritansh Raghav tells Business Insider. Today, Skype starts to fire back with a huge, sweeping new upgrade that refreshes the look and adds a bunch of smart new features to both text and video chat. This 'next generation' of Skype will come first to Android devices, starting today, with updates to the iOS, Windows, and Mac apps coming later this year.
