Skype for Android tablets gets blessed with portrait mode. Chrome Beta updated to 25.0.1364.47.

Never too late. Android tablets are now able to make calls in portrait mode after Skype issued an update yesterday. Since most Android devices defaults to landscape, owners of these devices have complained about the lack of support for portrait mode in Skype. The latter has listened and posted the update that does  bring portrait mode when making video calls only. The default landscape mode remains throughout the rest of the app. The update also contains the usual performance improvements and fixes. New language support has been added for Portuguese, Norwegian and English (UK). Check the notification center on your device to download the update. Note that the update is also available for Android phones. Skype can be downloaded free on Google Play Store.
