Last night, the official Skype application for Android was updated to v3.0 that brings about a new layout optimized for Android tablets. The application now features a new layout optimized for 7″ and 10″ Android tablets. Sadly, the updated version of the app will only work in landscape mode on all tablets.
The new update also includes some other changes include an improved audio quality thanks to the use of Skype’s wideband audio codec – SILK.
