    Default Skype Mobile Rolling Out Video Chat for iPhone



    Earlier this week, Skype was the talk of the social networking world when the popular service temporarily bit the dust and sustained an outage that had people wondering what was wrong from every corner of the globe. From desktop to mobile applications, Skype went down for the count, a situation that has since been reversed but not without a lot of additional attention on the popular social networking platform.

    As a result, Skype users may no longer be in the dark on a forthcoming update to the service that is already generating substantial buzz for obvious reasons. It appears that a soon-to-be launched update for Skype Mobile will prove significant for iPhone 4 (and new iPod touch) owners. Skype is allegedly planning to introduce video calling capabilities for Skype Mobile on iOS. Proof of the looming update comes from a help document "discovered" on Skype’s official website - a doc titled “How do I make video calls with Skype for iPhone?” That was sort of the obvious giveaway.

    The document, however, points out that additional data charges may apply, so be sure to "check with your operator for details." While iOS may be the first major recipient of the video chat update, there's also talk of Android - and others - getting tossed into the mix before long. Check out what Skype has to say about the upcoming update by visiting Skype's mobile download page.

    Great article! I'm so excited to have this feature. Now I don't have to use my tedious facetime mac to iphone sillyness. I'm sure the rest of the iPhone community will welcome this with open arms

    After initial installation of this version, a popup actually tells you that it 'only' works on 'unmodified' version of iOS - it does not popup anymore after that... Anybody got it to work on your "unjailbroken" iPhones?

    Yet another hint of what is to come. All the nay-Sayers are getting the idea of actuality piece-by-piece.

    I hope that sooner than later Verizon gets a hold of the iPhone. Therefor enabling better pricing and better data plans..... Even though I'm grandfathered in.

    I've used skype a little before but it would cool to have the video calling feature other than using FaceTime since more people have skype accounts
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!
