14 New Android Devices Gain Skype Support With v2.5 Update

Who says iOS gets all the app love? Skype has just released version 2.5 for Android, which is about as big as they get in terms of expansion. The company has added support for an additional 14 Android devices, bringing total supported devices to 41 on the Android side. Now Skype video calling will also be available by default on several Motorola Devices including the Atrix 2.5 or Xoom 2.5. Download the updated Skype for Android app from the Android Market or Skype.com/m using your Android phone's browser or just scan the QR code below.

The Skype 2.5 for Android update also brings you further video enhancements. You can now switch between portrait and landscape mode during video calls, and zoom in with a simple double tap on the screen. There's also improved support for Bluetooth headsets and included a number of bug fixes and performance enhancements, which should further boost the user experience of Skype for Android on your phone. In addition, as with our recent Mac and iOS update, there will be an advertising platform introduced in this new release. Advertising will not be shown to users that have Skype Credit, a Calling or Skype Premium subscription.
