Skype for Android Update Brings Improved Interface and More

Skype for Android has just been updated to version, and brings an updated calling interface, performance improvements, bug fixes, and continues to add video calling support for more devices with the addition of support for Sprint’s Samsung Epic 4G Touch.

The market page lists the following:

What’s in this version:

  1. Improvements and new features:
  2. Calling interface updated
  3. Improved quality
  4. Enabled video calling for Samsung Epic 4G Touch

Here’s what the new calling interface looks like. Minimalist and classy.


The addition of video calling support for Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch is a welcome addition for users of that device, though some comments on the market page say it still has issues. Any Epic 4G Touch users care to comment?

With the news that the Epic 4G Touch may be getting ICS soon, we have to wonder if another update to Skype will be required since some users report issues with Skype on ICS.

In the meantime, you can download Skype for Android from the Android Market below.

    It’s a pity that Skype video calling on the Motorola XOOM was broken with the previous update and still not fixed with this update.
