Anybody who already has or is going to pick up a new iPhone 4 through Verizon will be happy to know that many developers have made updates to their apps to support the phone’s newest carrier. Among them is Skype, which has just recently been updated to function on the Verizon iPhone 4. Another new feature to come with this update includes support for the H.264 codec, which allows Skype users to make calls to more Skype-enabled devices, such as the new TVs from Panasonic and Samsung.

Those with Android-powered smartphones will also be happy to know that video calling capabilities will be coming to Skype for Android on the 28th of February, according to Droid-Life. Unfortunately, this will only apply for those on Verizon, as it looks like anyone else will only be able to use the voice calling feature.

Things are looking pretty good for Verizon customers right now, let’s hope the competition with AT&T means there are more good things to come.
