Skype and Android

Have you ever missed an important business meeting because of issues beyond your control?  Or you are scheduled for a video conference and you get called away from your office? If you have, you understand what this may have done to your reputation and/or your business. Meetings are where you have the chance to shine and explain to prospective clients why they should choose your business in an ever competitive field. This is where the new app from Skype for Android phones can help out.

The newer Android phones are coming out with a front facing camera and Skype is taking advantage of this technology to introduce video calling using your smart phone. This can be done anywhere that there is either a WiFi or 3G connection. This means that you do not even need to have phone service in an area to attend these meetings. This is true, no matter what platform the people that you want to meet with are operating on. This newest version of Skype mobile will connect your Android phone to a multitude of devices, including iPhones, PC’s, Macs, and any other Skype enabled product.

Since video calling will play a larger role in the way we communicate this type of mobile video calling was inevitable. The best part of this is that it is free to use (however data rates will apply depending on your contract and carrier).

Skype video calling for mobile phones is easy to use. Just download the new app from the Android Market and install the app.

Once it is installed, tap on the app to open it. Here you will be asked to log into your Skype account (or if you do not have one, create a new account) using your username and password. After logging in to Skype, you will then be asked to sync your phone contacts. Here you will have the ability to choose to sync all, or choose to only sync the ones you want.

Once synced, the next option will allow you to choose a contact and there will be options to make a call. You can call the phone directly, in which case charges may apply, you can make a Skype to Skype call which will be free of charge, you can chat, or you can make a video call.

It is that simple to never miss an important meeting again. By following these simple steps you could be making that meeting in a matter of minutes.
