People keeping track of these things will remember that when the Skype for Android version 2.0 was released to the public back in July, it brought with it Skype Video Calling to the Google-developed Android operating system, meaning that Skype for Android 2.0 users were able to make 1-to-1 video calls to their friends via WiFi or 3G. But that’s not the news; that’s just a quick reminder.

The news is that Skype for Android has been updated to version 2.1 and that this version enables video for even more Android-powered devices. You see, Skype for Android version 2.0 provided support for a handful of devices: HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia pro and the Google Nexus S.

Skype said when it released v. 2.0 that it would add support for other devices in the future – and it stuck to that promise. Version 2.1 of Skype for Android adds support for 17 of the most popular Android-powered devices out there. These devices:

- Acer A5
- HTC Desire (2.2)
- HTC Desire HD
- HTC Evo 3D
- HTC Evo 4G
- HTC Flyer
- HTC Incredible S
- HTC Sensation
- HTC Thunderbolt - Verizon (2.2) (US only)
- LG Revolution - Verizon (2.2) (US only)
- Samsung Droid Charge - Verizon (2.2) (US only)
- Samsung Galaxy S
- Samsung Galaxy S II
- Samsung Galaxy Tab
- Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro
- Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY
- Sony Ericsson Xperia ray

If you would like to get Skype for Android 2.1 you can get it in one of three ways. You can get it from the Android Market – that would be the first one., You can get it from Skype.com/m – that would be the second one. The third method is to just scan the QR code presented below.



Apart from letting you make 1-to-1 video calls, Skype for Android also allows you to call landline and mobile phones all over the world and send text messages to friends for a low rate.
