Skype for Android gets updated, brings video calling to certain devices

Skype for Android received an update that allows you to finally make video calls to other Skype members. Before you get all excited, there’s one little problem: video calling is only supported on certain devices at the moment. In order to user video calling on the app, your phone must be supported and it must be running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). At the moment, the following devices support video calls:

  • Google Nexus S
  • HTC Desire S
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro

In addition to finally enabling video calls, the Skype update also comes with a full redesign of the user interface. A new main menu has been added that allows you to easily navigate though your contacts, profile, use the dial pad, make video calls, and much more. To download the updated version, hit up the Android Market or scan the QR code below.
