Skype for Android Update Brings Portrait Calling And More Languages

Skype for Android received a nice update today that will help to complement your tablet’s screen. More specifically, the app is now designed to support video calling in portrait view on your Android tablet. Also in the update, Skype for Android now supports Portuguese, Norwegian and English (UK). Finally, the update brings a few bug fixes and performance boosts.

On a side note, Skype was purchased by Microsoft in May of 2011 for $8.5 billion. This price is now estimated to be 32 times more than Skype’s overall operating profit. However, Skype still leads the world in video chatting and has only grown stronger since they expanded into Facebook.

Overall, the application is very well designed and fits almost every type of screen. Not to mention the fact that the app is pretty much bug-free. In my use of Skype over the past few years, I have never experienced a single problem and the call quality is always great.

Be sure to download the Skype official version of the app. The Skype and Verizon version of the app has not been updated since July of 2011.

What is your favorite video chatting service? Do you think that Skype is a good replacement for a lack of face time in modern society? Let us know in the comments below.
