Today Skype Inc. Annoucned Skype for Android and released it in Android Market for all android users. You can get it for Free from Android Market and have Free VOIP International calls between Skype to Skype. It only works with Android 2.1 and above so if you are an Xperia X10 family owner, you’ll probably have to wait for another month to enjoy Skype on your Xperia X10. But it seems that it is not available outside US. ( Need confirmations though! )
Some of the Coolest features of the latest release of Voip client on Android – Skype are,
Skype for Android enables users to:
– Make free Skype-to-Skype calls over WiFi or mobile data connection (GPRS, EDGE, 3G)* to other Skype users anywhere in the world using Skype’s SILK codec for CD-like audio quality.
– Make low rate Skype calls to landline or mobile phones
– Send and receive instant messages to one or a group of friends on Skype
– Synchronize contacts between Skype and the native address book and after synchronization place Skype calls directly from the native address book.
– See when Skype contacts are online and available to call or chat
– Easily import names and numbers to the Skype application from the native address book
– Receive calls on their Skype online number
Mark Douglas, Product Manager of Android said: “The Skype experience is ubiquitous today. More and more people are using Skype to do things together when apart. With the addition of Android, we are pleased that Skype is now available on three of the most popular mobile platforms today: Android, iOS and Symbian”
I previously had a working copy of Skype Beta on my Xperia X10, but that was of no use, as it only permitted to have Chat and no Skype to Skype Calls. 🙁 I’m so impatient about the Android 2.1, Eclair update by Sony Ericsson now!
If you are a Skype Lover and want to experience Skype on your Phone now, i can upload the Beta Version somewhere! Let me know, if you guys want it. 🙂 And I’ll also try to find a workaround for this Android 2.1, Version to work on Xperia X10. Will keep you posted on this, stay tuned. 🙂
