Skype for Android updated, photo and video sharing plus improved Tegra 2 performance

    Microsoft’s attempt to compete against Kik, WhatsApp, iMessage, BBM and other similar apps. Fair enough. i’m not a fan of Microsoft, however. 😐

    I’ve been wondering for a while – and I’ve reviewed the app too with this comment – as to why Skype needs so many bloody permissions. Why do they need to retrieve running applications and why do they need to modify global system settings? It doesn’t perform any special tasks other than calling contacts, so what does it need the extra stuff for?

    Video calling in portrait mode still does not work on my Galaxy Nexus.

    It worked on mine but I had to audio call first and then switch to video

    Does Skype let you exit it when you’re not using it yet?
