Android jumps to version 2.6 today, and it brings with it some really nifty sharing capabilities.
Now you can send photos, recorded videos, or other files to your contacts directly from Skype's chat interface. Based on the screenshot, the feature seems simple enough, and we're sure it'll be popular with anyone who regularly uses the Skype app. File sharing is free and available over Wi-Fi or through your device's data connection.
Also, anyone with a device running Nvidia's Tegra 2 chipset will get to enjoy improved video quality and battery life.
Skype 2.6 for Android is available for free download now in the Android Market.
