Skype launches video calls for iPhone, doesn’t limit you to a WiFi connection

skype iPhone Skype launches video calls for iPhone, doesnt limit you to a WiFi connection

As we suspected, Skype has added video call capabilities to the iPhone. What we didn’t expect was for it to happen so quickly. That’s right, they’ve already released the update that we mentioned yesterday. They even managed to throw in a pretty big surprise.

If you’ve got an iPhone 4 or a 4th-gen iPod Touch, then you’ll be able to place video calls to any of your friends via Skype. However, if you’re using an iPhone 3GS, 3rd-gen iPod Touch or iPad, you’ll still be able to receive video chats. So what’s the big surprise? You don’t have to be on WiFi to place or receive such calls. Pretty strange that FaceTime won’t work over 3G, and yet Skype will. The update is free, and can be downloaded from the App Store now.
