    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1o6TBezfSpU&feature=player_detailpage]YouTube - ‪Skype for Android App - Now with Video Calling!‬‏[/ame]

    A select few Android phones can now do smooth and seamless two-way video calling using a new 2.0 update to the Android Skype app. The only phones that are currently compatible shipped originally with Gingerbread 2.3 installed on them. Here is a list of the phones that work:
    1. Google Nexus S
    2. HTC's Desire S
    3. Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo
    4. Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro

    The new update requires Gingerbread or above to function, and support for other devices is currently in the works. Skype v2.0.0.45 also contains a UI overhaul and support for SMS messaging. You can check out a video above of the app in action, and below is the full press release.
    Skype brings Video Calling to Android Phones

    LUXEMBOURG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skype today announced an updated version of its Skype for Android app Skype for Android 2.0, bringing Skype Video Calling to the currently fastest growing mobile OS1.

    "We are committed to bring Skype Video Calling to as many platforms as possible and are delighted to deliver on this with our new updated Skype for Android app"

    With the new version, users will be able to make and receive free2 1-to-1 video calls over Skype between their Android phone and other Skype contacts on the iPhone, Mac, Windows PCs and even TVs3. Skype for Android with video works over Wi-Fi or 3G data connections and can be downloaded for free from the Android Market or Skype.com/m using any phone browser.

    "We are committed to bring Skype Video Calling to as many platforms as possible and are delighted to deliver on this with our new updated Skype for Android app," said Neil Stevens, Skype's vice president and general manager for product and marketing. "With approximately 30 million concurrent users logging into Skype at any given time4 and making up to half a million simultaneous video calls5, Skype for Android with video makes it even easier for users to share moments with their contacts wherever they are."

    In addition to video calls, users can also make calls to landlines and mobiles around the world, as well as send SMS's to friends and family anywhere in the world at great Skype rates. All this comes with a complete redesign of the Skype for Android user interface. There's a new main menu on the Skype app for Android where users can navigate easily through their contacts, access their Skype profile to change personal details or see the balance of their Skype Credit. Finally a new mood message box at the top of the Skype app menu makes it easier than ever for users to share how they are feeling, what they've seen, or what they're up to.

    For this first phase of launch, handsets that support video calling include the HTC Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, Sony Ericsson Xperia pro and the Google Nexus S.
