    Skype Unveils IPhone Video Calling Over 3G and Wi-Fi

    Post by Ben Wars on Thu Dec 30, 2010 1:16 pm

    As expected, Skype is ringing in 2011 with the addition of video calling to its Skype for iPhone app.

    On iOS devices with two cameras, you can stream video from either. iPhone 3GS users, of course, can only stream video from that device's sole rear-facing camera.

    You can use the Skype app to place calls to other folks using the app, or to folks using Skype on their computers. As it did before, the Skype app continues to offer instant messaging, text messaging, audio-only chats, and the ability to call landlines and mobile phones at low rates.

    Apple's FaceTime technology is currently limited to Wi-Fi calling only. One might wonder whether Skype's timing for adding video chat to its app might aim to make us forget about the company's recent extended outage, but that would require remembering said outage happened in the first place.

    Skype for iPhone is free. Video calling requires iOS 4.0 or later, but the app can run on any device with at least iOS 3.0.

    finally, they realised that FaceTime was free, so they now want to do the same to get more traffic on their service.

    Thanks for that update info RazorX. Thats pretty damn cool, having one person on their computer and the other somewhere else like outside or something while video chatting. Is it laggy when you tried it?

    no, it worked perfectly, definitely the best alternative to video chat from an iPod to a computer.
