Proving its standing as the most popular video calling app beyond a shadow of a doubt, Skype revealed on Tuesday that downloads from Google Play had now passed the incredible 70-million mark, shattering records and making the age of the video call look like it’s finally truly with us.
Available for more than 1300 Android-toting devices, the beauty of Skype over certain other OS video call options is that Skype works cross-platform, allowing Android users to make free voice or video calls to any other Skype user, whether fellow Google OS gossipers, Apple iOS interchangers or even those with a penchant for PC prattle.
Utilising either Wi-Fi or 3G connection, Skype also allows you to send video messages and images, saving vast sums of your hard-earned when either home or, particularly, abroad.
However, given we’re now looking at 70-million downloads, there’s an excellent chance you already know all of this, so we’ll suffice to say congratulations to Skype, keep up the good work and continue to give us all something to talk about.
That said if you are reading this and aren’t already making the most out of the free app, then, firstly, where have you been? Stuck in a cave? And, secondly, head to Google Play now to add to the download record and get your face-to-face for free.
