iPhone Officially Gains Skype Video Calling: Videos
The word doing the rounds was that Skype was going to deliver video calling to the iPhone, but most expected it to be a while before Skype updated their iOS app with the feature, but apparently the wait wasn’t that long as Skype has now updated their iOS app delivering video calling to the iPhone.
Skype 3.0 for iOS devices is now available to download from iTunes, and features video calling for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch and will work over 3G and WiFi although obviously the iPhone 3GS doesn’t feature a front facing camera but the device can still broadcast via its rear camera.
We have some video footage of Skype for iPhone video calling in action for your viewing pleasure below courtesy of Chris Ziegler, over at Engadget which tests Skype 3.0 on iPhone to iPhone on WiFi and 3G and iPhone to desktop on WiFi and say that 3G to 3G video calling isn’t recommended unless necessary, but you can check that out below.
There’s also an official Skype two minute promo of Skype for iPhone with video which you can check out by hitting that play button. Skype for iPhone 3.0 is a free application and can be downloaded from iTunes as of right now.
