Skype 2.0 now offers free video calling on mobile handsets based on the Google Android platform

The latest version of Skype for Android smartphones includes a new video-calling feature. Using either a WiFi or 3G internet connection, Skype for Android 2.0 provides free one-to-one video calls to your Skype contacts on most other devices, including Windows/Mac computers, iPhones and even Skype enabled TVs.

Although the service itself is free, the overall cost depends on your phones data-plan if you’re using a 3G connection, but there should be no charges for using the service over a WiFi connection. This new version of Skype for Android also comes with a completely redesigned interface, aimed at improving its ease of use.

Neil Stevens, Skype’s vice president and general manager for product and marketing, said: “We are committed to bring Skype Video Calling to as many platforms as possible and are delighted to deliver on this with our new updated Android video chat app.”

According to research firm, Gartner, Android is now the world’s fastest growing mobile platform.
