Skype today announced the new version of its iPhone application that allows iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and fourth-generation iPod touch users to share real-time video with other Skype clients on iOS devices or the PC/Mac clients. The service will work over 3G or WiFi (subject to bandwidth) although iPhone 3GS users will only have a rear facing camera to send video with.
“With video calling representing approximately 40% of all Skype-to-Skype minutes for the first six months of 2010, our users have been eager to get Skype video calling on their mobile phones,” said Neil Stevens, general manager of Skype’s consumer business. “By bringing video to mainstream users at their home or work via their desktops, on the go with their mobiles, or into their living room via their TV, Skype has made it possible for millions of people to share video moments wherever they are.”
