Skype just updated their Android app today moving it to version 18.104.22.168. The latest update brings the addition of 14 new white listed device including official support for 3 tablets. The update also enables landscape mode for your video calls. If I remember correctly, that was definitely a highly requested feature. Skype also made improvements for Bluetooth support, the ability to edit and delete IM messages and finally killed the app from auto signing in after you signed out.
I am glad to see Skype continuing to improve its handset and tablet support. Since I don’t have a FFC on my Vibrant, I haven’t had much of a chance to give it a try. Check out the full list of newly added devices below -
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (T-Mobile)
HTC SHOOTER (KDDI)
Sony Ericsson Xperia Live with Walkman
Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V
Acer Iconia Tablet (A500)
LG Optimus Black LANDSCAPE ONLY
LG Optimus 3D LANDSCAPE ONLY
LG Optimus 2x LANDSCAPE ONLY
Motorola Droid3 LANDSCAPE ONLY
Motorola Bionic LANDSCAPE ONLY
I think I am still more likely to use Google+ Hangouts if I had a FFC. You guys still using Skype? What do you think of the latest update?
