  Microsoft is optimizing Skype for low-end Android phones Microsoft is rolling out an updated version of Skype for Android, one that’s optimized for devices running older versions of the OS, providing better audio and video quality for lower-end devices. The new update will optimize the app for Android devices running versions 4.0.3 to 5.1. Microsoft says that this version “is lighter on both disk and memory consumption,” and that it’ll provide better audio and video for those devices, in addition to better performance when the connection isn’t so hot. The update will be rolled out worldwide in the coming weeks.

Apple says it will fix a bug that caused Siri to read out hidden lock screen notifications to anyone who asks. The original bug allowed Siri to read out lock screen notifications for third-party apps, even if you turned off message previews while the phone is locked.
