Those smartphone users who’s devices use the Android OS (Operating System), can now download and use the new Skype App which is a free download. Users can make calls to Skype accounts, cell phones and landlines. Sending and receive text messages via the application when communicating with Skype friends is also included. Those who want to keep all their content in one place can sync their Skype address book. The company also said that users with a Skype online number will be able to receive calls on it too which is pretty cool and definitely saves cell minutes for those users not on an unlimited plan.
As it’s a new App, Skype is still testing it and fixing bugs as there are some random reports of minor compatibility issues. Like any software, these should get ironed out reasonably soon. All in all it’s a great App addition for Android users.
