Skype has rolled out an update of its Android application that brings two way video calling feature to almost all new Gingerbread running devices. Last month, Skype had launched the feature for only few Android handsets.
Along with the enhanced compatibility for certified or tested Gingerbread running devices, with this update, the same application will also work with other devices but Skype does not guarantee perfect video quality for those devices.
The application will work both on WiFi and 3G networks. However, devices older than Gingerbread will have to use the rear camera for video calling as Android itself does not allow the usage of the front video camera for video calling.
The list of newer compatible handsets presently available in India include Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy Tab, HTC Desire, HTC Sensation, HTC Incredible S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Flyer, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro.
Existing users can upgrade the application directly from the Android marketplace app or can also follow the link for downloading the app on their device.
