Skype possibly the best known application of computer, because with it we can make calls to any landline (even mobile) in the world. We can also use it as a Messenger between Skype users and even set a call on computer to computer without any cost.
Mobile time ago they jumped into the ring, starting on the Symbian platform and for the rest, including Android. In our platform where has been receiving several updates, after the activation of 3G calls to the presented today, with the activation of video calls, of which you move something a few months ago. With this new feature you can make video calls to other Android phones or even to or from a computer.
The operation is as simple as checking in your contact list who has activated the function for video call, imaged with a camera next to your contact’s icon, either because it is on a computer with webcam or because your mobile phone has support for this type of calls.
Unfortunately, in Android, at the moment only available 4 terminals to enjoy this new inclusion, namely the Google Nexus S, HTC Desire, Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo and Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro. In my case I have done test from the Nexus S to the Skype application for computer and, although it has been using the home WiFi, refreshment in the image display has shown much delay.
We hope that this list go extending, not knowing very well if it is a problem of development of Skype by lack of information about terminals, or technical limitations of the mobile themselves. Let us remember that many mobile have exclusivity with some operators, which are totally adverse to their users to use these extra services unless they see an economic benefit on the invoice. If you’re one of the users, with some of the mobile winners, tell us about your experience with video calling, meanwhile I leave you with a video demonstration of how the theme works.
