Skype Lands in Android Market

Paul Lilly

Just one day after appointing Cisco Senior Executive Tony Bates as its new CEO, Skype has gone and announced the release of its Skype for Android app for mobile handsets running Android 2.1 or later.

"The Skype experience is ubiquitous today. More and more people are using Skype to do things together when apart. With the addition of Android, we are pleased that Skype is now available on three of the most popular mobile platforms today: Android, iOS, and Symbian."

It's been a long wait, but now that it's here, Android smartphone owners can make free Skype-to-Skype calls over Wi-Fi or mobile data connections (GPRS, EDGE, 3G), make Skype calls to landlines, send and receive individual or group Skype IMs, synchronize contacts between Skype and the native address book, receive calls on their Skype online number, and a few other goodies.
