Skype for Android Updated to Include Video Calling

Earlier in the week we told you about Skype for iPhone being updated, now it’s the turn of Skype for Android!


Show a friend your new haircut, or your five-year-old’s latest painting. Have a face-to-face meeting with far-off clients. With Skype on Android, you can make mobile video calls*** to other Skype users on Android and iPhone smart phones, MAC and Windows PCs and TV too.

What’s in this version:

  1. 14 additional devices whitelisted for video calling.
  2. Video calls now supported in portrait and landscape. Double-tap to zoom.
  3. Revised Recent view – conversations now grouped around your contacts.
  4. Improved support for Bluetooth headsets.
  5. In-client advertising. (Advertising will not be shown to users that have Skype Credit, a Calling or Skype Premium subscription.)
  6. It is possible to edit and delete IM messages.
  7. Skype will no longer restart in the background when you sign out.
