If you are a heavy or frequent user of the Skype for Android app, we are the harbingers of good news today – Skype for Android has turned 3.0 today, where this latest version is said to be specially optimized to scale to your tablet’s bigger display, allowing you to experience Skype in the best manner possible on a far more generous display no matter where you are. Needless to say, the slew of the most popular Android-powered tablets out there such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, the Google Nexus 7, Acer Iconia, Asus Transformer Prime, Motorola Xoom and Sony S will play nice with the latest version of Skype for Android without missing a beat.

Of course, where would great visuals be if there was no decent audio quality to accompany it? Skype for Android 3.0 is said to introduce support to their very own wideband audio codec known as SILK. SILK was specially designed to capture the richness of human speech, where it is capable of handling often varying speeds of Internet connections, making sure that the receiving end always gets the best audio quality possible, even over a shaky connection.
