Android: Skype has just opened its free internet calling app to everyone via the Android Market. Anyone running Android 2.1 and above can make Skype chats, calls (Wi-Fi and 3G) and sync Skype to their contacts.
Skype says its tested its app on HTC and Motorola phones and knows it’s got a few kinks to work out, especially on the Samsung Galaxy S and other brands. When the app does work, though, it simply works in a very Android way. Skype stays open in the background and remains accessible through the notification bar. The app can sync your Skype contact data to your existing contacts and make Skype Out calls using your Skype credit.
Here’s Skype in action in its official launch video:
Skype is a free download for Android phones running 2.1 firmware and above. If you’re giving it a test this morning, give us your likes and dislikes in the comments. Thanks Lowell!
