The new version of Skype (v2.5) brings support for video-calling for 14 additional Android devices, bringing the tally to a total of 41.

Below is the list of all the supported devices :

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
  • HTC Nexus One
  • HTC Shooter
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia Live with Walkman
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V
  • LG Optimus Black
  • LG Optimus 3D
  • LG Optimus 2x
  • Motorola Photon
  • Motorola Droid 3
  • Motorola Bionic
  • Motorola Xoom
  • Motorola Atrix
  • Acer Iconia

It’s nice to see Skype adding support for Android devices, which lack a front facing camera. Other new features in this update include improved support for Bluetooth headsets, quite a few bug fixes and performance improvements. Skype users can now also switch between portrait and landscape call whilst on a video call, and can also zoom in on the screen via double tapping.

The new update will also not show advertisements to users who have Skype credits in their account. Hopefully, the new version of Skype will also be light on battery usage.

Android users can head over to Android Market to download the latest version of Skype. Alternatively, they can scan the QR Code below-
