Video Calling Via Skype Comes To Android

Android users can now use Skype for video chatting. The latest version of the Skype for Android app lets customers make two-way video calls to other Skype users on the iPhone, Mac, Windows PCs, other Android phones as well as TVs. The upgraded app also includes a redesigned interface to streamline navigation and make it easier to see things like the balance on your Skype Credit. It also adds something called a "mood message box" at the top of the screen menu that "makes it easier than ever to share how you are feeling, what you've seen or what you're up to." Sounds like the new mood ring.

Handsets that allow video calling at launch include the HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia pro and the Google Nexus S, with more to come. The new Skype for Android app is available in the Android Market or through a QR code in this Skype blog post.
