Skype for Android Now Available

Skype for Android is now available to download. The Skype download requires Android 2.1+ to function and is compatible with all devices (other than the Galaxy S that has a few bugs at the moment).

Android Skype works just like any other version in that you log in with your username and password, if you have one, and see all the contacts you already have. You can IM or call over Wi-Fi or 3G although for those in the US, calling is restricted to WiFi only at the moment.

Below is a short list of what you can and cannot do with the service. Below that is a video demonstration of how Skype for Android works.

Skype is not available in the Android Market in China or Japan.
Skype has been tested on HTC and Motorola devices with Android OS 2.1 and above. It may work on other Android phones, but we can’t guarantee full functionality or compatibility. We’re aware of some problems with the Samsung Galaxy S, and we’re looking to address these in the future.
It’s free to use Skype in a WiFi zone. If you use Skype with a mobile data connection, operator charges may apply, so we recommend an unlimited data plan.
In the US, you can make calls only over WiFi.
A fair use policy applies to unlimited subscriptions.

To get Skype for Android you can search in the Android Market or visit from your mobile browser.
