Android's Version Of Skype For Business Is On The Way, And You Can Sign Up Now To Test The Preview

The free version of Skype is great for personal use, but you can also get work done with it as well. I took part in numerous job interviews over video chat during my last year of college. When I landed an internship, we used it to communicate around the office.

But for big work done by big companies, there's Skype for Business. It comes with extra perks such as the ability to chat with up to 250 people and integrate everything with Office. The enterprise-oriented service replaced Microsoft Lync on desktops when it launched at the end of last year.

Now mobile apps are on the way.

Team17 Announces Worms 4, A Mobile-Focused Worms Game Coming To Android Eventually

The basic gameplay of Worms hasn't changed since its debut in the 90s. Well, except for that brief flirtation with 3D in the early 2000s, but let's pretend that didn't happen. There's a new Worms title coming soon, and it's crafted especially for mobile devices with quick gameplay and a big single-player campaign.

As we all know, Google I/O is right around the corner. So far this year, we haven't seen too many early clues as to what Google will cover in its keynote (though Ars Technica's I/O tracker is a great place to get some ideas) outside of its new Photos app, but we do expect that Google will be telling us about Android M (internally called macadamia nut cookie or MNC).

The specifics of what Android M will bring to the table are still a mystery, but we've heard a few things that could make this an exciting update.

Microsoft Releases Outlook Preview For Android

In the dead of night (for those in the US, anyway), Microsoft has released its Outlook Preview app to the Play Store.

Built for Android phones and tablets alike, Microsoft promises that Outlook will help you "get more done from anywhere," handling all your email accounts and attempting to automatically triage your inbox based on what seems most relevant.

  

For manual triage, the app offers swipe gestures for quickly deleting, archiving, or "scheduling" messages (essentially like snoozing in Google's Inbox).

Outlook also wants to handle your calendar - Microsoft notes the app has your calendar built right in, and it can provide its own reminders and notifications for events.

What can you do with Google Glass? If you already own a pair, you can run through a list of specific features and functions you've taken advantage of since getting the device. If you don't own a pair, then your answer is probably going to resemble something akin to Preview. This glassware is the kind all of us thought up back when Google Glass first appeared.

People with Preview installed can view movie trailers on Google Glass just by looking at a poster. Well, that and speaking the words "OK Glass, preview." The app will then search YouTube for the most recent promotional video.

Google Releases Google Fit Preview SDK, Opens Google Fit Developers Community

At Google I/O, we heard a little bit about Google Fit - Google's renewed effort at quantified, managed health data. We heard that multiple partners had signed on and got a taste of what Google Fit would be able to accomplish, but beyond that details were a little hazy.

We were however told a preview SDK would be made available in "coming weeks," (a dreaded phrase to any Google user) and today that promise has been fulfilled. In a post to its Developers Blog, Google has announced the Google Fit preview SDK, explaining that Fit provides a "single set of APIs for apps and device manufacturers to store and access data from fitness apps and sensors," making it easy for apps to provide not just raw fitness data, but useful insights based on those data.
