The messaging application Skype has made the transition to a new logo design. This new logo is now available for Android and iOS applications.
Microsoft has recently redesigned the icon for many of its applications. The latest application for redesigned applications was Skype. In November 2018, Microsoft redesigned the icons of Office applications, and now changed the application icon of Skype, the conversation and messaging application.
The company now offers these updated icons for the iOS and Android platforms. The new icon update for iOS, launched earlier this week, now appears on Android owners’ devices. Although the old icon continues to appear on Google Play now, the new icon appears when you download and install the application on your phone. Microsoft is expected to update its icon on Google Play very soon.
How is the new icon?
Especially in the early 2000s, embossed and mixed logos were very popular. In recent years, companies that have moved away from all these extremes have started to shift to vector-oriented designs. In addition, with the increase in mobile applications, logos in square format were replaced with logos with a round theme. Skype’s latest logo has been designed to fit this trend, and has been developed in a way that is both simple and contemporary. Skype, which supports the vector theme of the old logo with a little more shadow, seems to come out with this logo for a long time.
