Android users have been screaming for it for ages, and now Skype has finally complied and is offering Skype for a wide range of Android phones. Android users only need to point their mobile browser to skype.com/m and follow the instructions. Aside from making from Skype-to-Skype calls, users will be able to send and receive IMs too, either one-to-one, or in a group chat. You’ll also be able to call phones using Skype Credit, over Wi-Fi or 3G. If you’re already a Skype user, you’ll see your full contact list before you when you sign into Skype on your Android phone. Bear in mind that this seems to work for selected users as some have complained that they get the message, “Sorry, Skype is unavailable for your mobile. We add new handsets all the time so check back soon.” Video of the Skype for Android app in action after the jump.
