Skype Brings Video Calling To iPhone, iPod Touch And iPad

Nearly a week ago, we had reported that Skype will soon be bringing video calling feature to the iPhone 4. Initially, it was expected that Skype will make this huge announcement at the upcoming CES 2011. However, the looks like the company has some other plans for CES as today they have released an updated version of Skype for iOS which enables video calling.

Here is a video demonstrating video calling on the iPhone 4 using Skype :

The updated application will allow iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4th generation and iPhone 3GS owners to make video calls to Skype users all over the world using either Wi-Fi or 3G. iPhone 3GS owners need to use the camera at the back of their phone to broadcast their video though.

iPad and iPod Touch 3G owners can also use the application to receive video calls from other Skype users. Obviously, owners of these devices can’t make video calls due to the lack of any kind of camera on the device. Here is the link to the announcement from Skype themselves.

Hopefully, Skype will announce an updated version of their application at the upcoming CES which will bring video calling to Android as well.
