Skype for Android got an update today – a much-needed major update to the Android app. Skype Android app now brings you video-calling across (some) Android devices and a UI overhaul to the app. Skype video-calling was one of the most requested features on the app, and looks like we finally got it today.
Video-calling on Skype for Android is cross-platform. Android to iPhone to PCs to PSPs – everywhere! The new UI is not something to be happy about as it because it is very bloated and slow. You can hardly use it. It’s really nice, but only if the Skype Android team would make it even more better in speed.
Skype for Android is an app we all have been waiting for a long time. Skype partnered with Verizon and only Verizon Android handsets were able to download the official Skype app.
Today Skype released an Android app for all the users who are on a Android 2.1 or above device. Free calls are finally available to Android users now.
