Skype v2.0.0.45 for Android is now available

skype-for-androidThe well know Skype application for Android has just been updated to version 2.0 and brings a lot of new features and improvements, and one of them is that you can now make one-to-one video calls over both Wi-Fi and 3G connections.

To grab this update for Skype your Android device needs to run the Android 2.3 version (or above) and to have a front-facing camera. Some of the Android devices that supports the new Skype include the HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia pro and the Google Nexus S. The new Skype v2.0.0.45 also includes an UI overhaul with a new design for Android devices, and support for SMS messaging, neither of which suffers from any handset restrictions. The improvements brought by this new update can be noticeable at the frame rates which are now working more smoothly and the new UI brings a few functions. Now you can mute the call, choose between the front or rear-facing camera, and reposition the small window that shows your video feed anywhere on the screen.

You can download the Skype app from the Android Market or on your browser to Skype.com/m from your phone.
