Microsoft has updated Skype for Android to version 5.1.0 with support for picture-in-picture, allowing you to keep a video call going while multitasking, allows your friends to see your device's screen.
This means that now you can come out of the Skype window in the middle of a video call, switch over to another app, and continue with the conversation. The feature, which is already available on tablets, should be rolling out to smartphones very soon.
What's New on Skype 5.1.0 :
• Chats load faster, especially when opened from a notification.
• Picture in picture view lets you keep a video call going - for phones now too!
• Receive photos from Skype for iPhone and other new clients.
• Supports formatted text: *bold* _italic_ ~strikethrough~
• Native Support for Hindi - SAHI!
