Skype has recently 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.

With the new version, users will be able to make and receive free one-to-one 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 using any phone browser.

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 SMSes 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.
