A few days ago, Skype 2.0 for Android was released. Other than some neat updates such as a new user interface, 2.0 supports video calls over Wifi and 3G. So, anyone with a front facing camera can enjoy making free video calls over their android mobiles, right? Unfortunately, not quite! The app only supports the:
- Nexus S
- HTC Desire S
- Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo
- Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro
That leaves out many capable Android mobiles, how frustrating is that? Luckily, Pulser over at XDA Developers felt the same way and released a hacked version of Skype 2.0. His version of the app supports nearly every capable Android device. There have been mixed results but a huge amount of people have found the app works wonders.
If your Android mobile has a front-facing camera and isn’t one of those supported devices, download the hacked app here and give it a go.
