Skype for Android enables users to:

  • Make low rate Skype calls to landline or mobile phones
  • Send and receive instant messages to one or a group of friends on Skype
  • Synchronize contacts between Skype and the native address book and after synchronization place Skype calls directly from the native address book.
  • See when Skype contacts are online and available to call or chat
  • Easily import names and numbers to the Skype application from the native address book
  • Receive calls on their Skype online number

"The Skype experience is ubiquitous today. More and more people are using Skype to do things together when apart. With the addition of Android, we are pleased that Skype is now available on three of the most popular mobile platforms today: Android, iOS and Symbian.
