Big news for Skype and Android users today as the service rolls out to anyone running 2.1 or higher on their handset. No longer exclusive to Verizon, it’s now available to roughly 3 in 4 of today’s Android phones. Among the features are the ability to make low rate calls to landline or mobile phones, import names and numbers from address book, and monitor which of your contacts are online and available for a call or chat. There is one caveat: In the US, Skype for Android works over WiFi only. Dealbreaker or exactly what you needed?
Google is bringing back its Android Dev summit this November. The last one was in 2015, and it was also hosted by the Computer History Museum.
