Yes, you read it correct. You can now Skype from your Android tablet too. Skype introduced its Android app for the modern UI when Google had released Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The app, however, was not optimised for bigger screens until today.
Skype 3.0 for Android supports tablet user interface and is for those who want to do voicing, chatting and video conferencing from their Android tablets. Skype for Android phones worked perfectly but there is nothing like an option of running the software on tablets as well. The UI of Skype for tablets is a cross breed between Android’s Holo UI and Skype’s own style. Both of them come together to offer a great experience in look and feel.
The new Skype also enables the users to sign in with a Microsoft account. It also brings along an improved audio and a couple bug fixes. Skype has not revealed much details about the bug fixes though. The new Skype shows how much it has come ahead of its first version of Android app. The development is a welcome change for Android fans. You can download Skype for your Android tablet from Google Play Store.
