Announcing the iPhone 4 and its front camera, Steve Jobs specifically said that the video calls so FaceTime only work with the device connected to WiFi networks. A few months later, some companies that develop links applications updated their programs to support the iPhone camera but keeping the restriction to use it only for WiFi. Today Skype broke this rule to release an update for iOS that brings support for video calls both over WiFi and by 3G.
Users of the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad and iPod 3rd and 4th generation Touch can perform video calls with the 3.0 version of Skype for iOS, now available for download on iTunes. But sending video is restricted obviously to devices that have a camera. As with voice calls, the quality of video calls varies depending on the connection speed of the user. The program also makes video calls between Skype users for Mac and PC, provided they are running application versions.
The update was not exactly a surprise, as a support article warning of the new function had already leaked on the company website earlier this week. But speculated that the release date of the update would be next week during a Skype press conference at CES 2011. Now that the new program is already in the network, imagine what they will announce.
Upgrade to 14:50 | With the arrival of the video call, Skype users for Mac and PC can now also share the screen with iOS device users. But remember: depending on the connection, the video may not have the best grades, as shown below.
