Skype calling is now available as a free download on Android-based devices, the Internet telephony company announced today. The Skype for Android software allows users to make calls to Skype accounts, mobile phones, or landlines.
Users can send and receive text messages via the application when communicating with Skype friends. Those who want to keep all their content in one place can sync their address book with Skype. The company also said that users will be able to receive calls on their Skype online number.
Skype has tested its software on several devices, including the HTC Desire and the Google Nexus One, but it "can't guarantee full functionality or compatibility" on other devices.
