Skype For iPhone To Finally Get Video Calling Feature

Skype iPhone app 2.0

Folks at Engadget have got hold of a help document that indicates that Skype is getting ready to release the video calling feature for iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.

It’s high time that Skype brings the video calling feature to the iPhone as apps like Tango, Yahoo and Fring already offer video calling feature in addition to Apple’s FaceTime video calling feature.

Engadget reports:

So let us set this up for you: Skype has been telling everyone that it’ll be making a “series of video-related announcements” at CES next month… and it’s participating in a panel called “Video Calling Gets Ready for Primetime,” so yeah, needless to say, we’d have to guess that Skype’s finally getting ready to enter the mobile video calling game in a big way. Anyhow, the final piece in the puzzle filtered into our inbox this morning: a help document on Skype’s site detailing making video calls using Skype for iPhone. We don’t know whether there’s a corresponding document out there for Android, Symbian, or other operating systems, but we’re certainly hoping so — because if these guys come to the table at once with versions for all the major phone platforms, we’ve got a feeling they’ll be dominating the mobile-to-mobile and mobile-to-PC video calling market in no time.

Skype is expected to announce video calling feature during CES, which starts on January 6, 2011.
