Call it a way of saying “We're sorry!” if you will, but the update enables all Skype users to make calls from their Android-powered smartphones over 3G networks. Until now, the feature was only a privilege that some Verizon subscribers could brag about, and needless to say, this discrimination was criticized by Skype users nationwide. With 3G calls now enabled for everybody, the service ought to make up for any loss in popularity that the security flaw may have caused.
If you are not a part of the big Skype family, feel free to give it a try. Calls between Skype users are free of charge, and paid services like international calls or text messaging come at pretty affordable rates.
