Skype for Android released!

Skype for Android released!

Well, Android users have been waiting long enough, but Skype have finally announced the launch of Skype for Android, bringing the famous free call app to your phone.


It’s a potentially huge development, and as long as you are running Android OS 2.1 (Eclair), you’re good to go. As long as you have a Skype account, just sign in and get calling. Just remember that there’s still a possibility that you’ll be billed for internet access, so unless you are using wifi, check with your carrier before ringing up that long-lost cousin in Australia.

I’ve taken a quick look at Skype for Android, and it seems like a pretty smooth ride. It has a nice little introductory sequence – although I’m a bit skeptical that anyone’s first contact with Skype is likely to be on Android – and the app is easy to find your way around and use. Our test call – from one end of the office to the other – was absolutely perfect, and I’d bet that once you’ve tried Skype for Android, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
