Skype 2.1

Version 2.1 has been released by Skype for Android app which will be supporting video calling feature on more Android devices.

Only few Android based devices viz. Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo, HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro and the Google Nexus S were allowed earlier to enjoy the video calling feature of Skype.

Thanks to Skype version 2.1, which now extends video calling support to 17 new Android smartphones and tablets which include HTC Desire, HTC Desire HD, HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Flyer tablet, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, Samsung Galaxy Tab along with Samsung Galaxy S.

Not simply this. Also included with this release are a few bug fixes along with the support for new devices. The devices which are not listed by the company are also allowed to activate the video calling feature on their devices through the Skype Settings option in the app.

However, if users do not find the video calling settings on their Android devices, it indicates that their device lacks the minimum requirements needed to make Skype video calls. Also, the quality of the video calls may not be as good when compared to that on a certified Android device. The company also says that only rear camera of the device will be working if it runs on Android 2.2 Froyo.
