Skype just announced about its launch on Android phones, particularly its updated video calling capable version. This finally enables Skype users to make and receive free personal video calls using their Android mobile devices to and from different device platforms like the iPhones, iPads, Macs and Windows PCs.
Skype for Android with video calling works over either 3G or Wi-Fi. Still, users can make calls to landlines or mobile numbers, as well as send text messages or SMS. Avid Skype users will experience a redesign on its user interface, where the main menu got a new facelift to easily navigate through contacts, profiles and even their Skype credit. An interesting addition of a mood message box on top of the Skype for Android app menu also gives a quick look on how your friends feel, see or what they’re up to.
For now, they’ve listed some handsets that support this newest Android feature and that includes the HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro and the Google Nexus S. Skype for Android app can be downloaded from Android Market or Skype.com/m using your phone browser.
