Skype is proud of a recently accomplished feat: its communication based Android application has been downloaded over 70 million times. More than 1,300 devices from the top Android manufacturers are able to connect with Skype for Android and utilize its audio chat and video chat capabilities. With the advent of the front facing camera that is practically present on every device being produced today, video chatting is at the forefront of mobile communication.
Skype for Android also allows users to instant message, send media files, and literally connects to any device that runs Skype (i.e. iOS, Mac, PC, tablets, etc). With an established brand name like Skype, it is easy to see why Android users continue to flock to the free application in the Play Store.
