Now you can Skype on your smartwatch

Now you can Skype on your smartwatch

We're one step closer to video chatting on wrist computers, just like Penny from "Inspector Gadget." You can't do it quite yet using Skype, but you can do some cool things using the new Skype app for Android Wear.

The update to version 6.4 now includes integration for Android wear that will let you handle chat messages, answer calls and much more.

The recent Skype update still won't work for video chatting since there isn't an in-watch camera, but you can control a ton of other app features.

Now you'll be able to accept or decline incoming calls, mute ongoing conversations, and even hang up on your Android Wear gadget. You can also do a lot with the messaging feature of the Skype app.

With 6.4, you can check notifications, view and quickly respond to your chat messages by speaking to your wrist, send emojis, or send a message with a pre-written response to save you time while you're on the go.

If you have Android Wear and want the most recent update, you can check to see if your gear is supported by opening up the Google Play Store >> My Apps >> click Update button to the right of the Skype app.

And if that sounds like too much work, you can always go to the Skype Google Play Store page and update it manually.
