Editors' Review

+

Skype brings to your device the essential desktop experience of the immensely popular communications service, making a positive impression with its beautifully simplified interface and the high audio and video call quality it offers. While this app proves to be at least as fun and accessible as the original software, you will have to put up with occasional quirks like dropped calls or app crashes mid call.

Pros

Portability: Skype for Android features the voice/video call and instant messaging with file sharing features of the original app and bundles them up in an accessible UI with a pleasant layout, proving to be more handy to use than the desktop version in many cases.

Gorgeous video calls: If your device comes with a good camera, the fluid, lag-free video call quality this app offers is up there with FaceTime. Moreover, you can use the back camera to share what you see.

Cons

Service issues: From time to time calls are dropped or fail to connect for no good reason. Though this feels more like a server than app issue, it remains annoying.

Crashes: The app is prone to crash occasionally during video calls, especially if the other person uses a desktop or non-Android device.

Bottom Line

This version of Skype for mobile devices proves highly appealing despite its occasional performance issues. Visually and in terms of features, this is probably the best VoIP app for Android. Download it right now, but keep in mind that its performance will likely depend on your specs and OS version.
