This means that iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and fourth-generation iPod touch users can share real-time videos with their fellow Skyper’s (whether they’re also on iPhone or a Windows or Mac.)
Plus iOS users will be able to receive video from others (if they’re using an iPad or a third-generation iPod touch.)
What makes this such exciting news is that the service is free and works over both WiFi and 3G which means you no longer have to wait for a hotspot to FaceTime your friends. Video calling is now available anytime over 3G with Skype.
There’s no news on Android or Windows Phone 7 video capability but Skype says that there’ll be “plenty more news” in the next few weeks so things look promising for the Google gang.
It seems Skype isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
That is unless it gets bought out by Google or Apple.
