Skype iOS App Now Allows Video over Wi-Fi AND 3G
Skype has updated their iOS app to version 3.0. Users may now make Skype-to-Skype video calls from their iOS devices. In even better news, the video capability is not restricted to just a Wi-Fi connection. The video chats work whether you are on a Wi-Fi or a 3G Network. Hopefully this will spur Apple and AT&T to get with the program and finally allow FaceTime chats over 3G as well.
The update is also very inclusive no matter what device you are using. Two-way video calling is supported on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and 4th Generation iPod Touch. Receive only video is supported on both the iPad and 3rd Generation iPod Touch.
And just in case it doesn’t go without saying… you can also make video calls between the iOS devices and Skype desktop users (both Mac and Windows).
I haven’t had a chance to test it yet this morning, so no word yet on the video quality, but I’ll definitely be using this feature. If you don’t already have Skype, give it a try. Even just for audio calls, the sound quality blows normal cellular quality out of the water.
