Recently we reported you about Skype updated for iPhone and iPod Touch devices which brought improved interface and Bluetooth headset support. Now Skype has launched another update but this time for Android devices. One of the major change they have made in new version 2.5 is to put down the limit on video call support for some Android 2.2 or great devices. Previously video call support was opened on all 2.2+ devices which has now come down to only 13 devices.

However if your lucky enough and your android device is running 2.2 or 2.2+, not listed in above mentioned whitelist then you can still be able to active video calling feature but the quality will not be as good as in above listed supported devices. Moreover, only Android 2.3 supports front facing camera during video calling. Therefore, devices which are running on Android 2.2 will only be able to access the back camera.

You can download updated Skype V2.5 free from Android Market.
