Skype intends on bringing its app to all Android handsets with video chat
Skype's roll out to other platforms and handsets may have been impeded since they announced their partnership with Verizon Wireless, but with all the chatter surrounding video chat, it looks like they're going forward in becoming a force in that sector. Although Skype for Android is limited to Verizon's smartphones, the company is intent on rolling out a version for all Android handsets later in the year which will undoubtedly come along with the highly sought out video chat feature. Their PR statement said, “Skype envisions a world where video plays a larger role in the way we communicate. It’s on computers, televisions, and it will eventually be coming to mobile devices too. We’re betting big on video, and we intend to set the bar on mobile video calling, and it’s something we’re going to do this year. We will be bringing a direct to consumer app to the Android marketplace later this year. This application will be available for all consumers globally to download regardless of carriers.” Fring surely set things in motion a couple of days ago when they announced this feature to be standard on their Android app. Others are following, but it looks like there are some out there that are looking to attach a premium to this new venture. Aside from Android, it would be nice if Skype also begins to roll this out to additional platforms.

I hope this comes out soon. America is living in the past when it comes to video calls.
