Skype For Android Updated and Brings Support for More Devices

When Skype for Android was released few months back, only selected smartphones (Samsung Google Nexus S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia pro, and HTC Desire S) were compatible with Skype video calling feature. Recently, Skype has issued an update for Android users which brings two way video calling to majority of android devices.


The updated version does not bring many new features but do bring support for many new smartphones including Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Droid Charge – Verizon, Samsung Galaxy Tab, HTC Desire (2.2), HTC Thunderbolt – Verizon, HTC Sensation, HTC Evo 4G, HTC Evo 3D, HTC Incredible S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Flyer, LG Revolution – Verizon (2.2), Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, Sony Ericsson Xperia ray, Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro, and the Acer A5.

However, devices running Android 2.2 can activate video calling feature from Skype settings and may be able to use the video calling feature but the video quality may not be as good as its on the supported devices and only the front video camera will work. If its still not working, you must wait for the next update which may bring support to your device.
