Oct 5, 2010 9:36 AM –
Most of us were shocked when Verizon allowed their users to use Skype on their network, but most of us were left in the dust as the deal was exclusive to Verizon. Today, however, Skype is available to all Android consumers with Android 2.1+ (Eclair) phones.
Key Features of Skype for Android:
- Make free Skype-to-Skype calls over Wi-Fi 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
