  1. Great feature! I was waiting for it for ages. The best thing done for Skype on iOS, after the update for multitasking. A friend of mine, who travels a lot uses it on his iPhone, and he finds it quite convenient. He can have a video conversation with his family while on the train πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Stevy,

      Thanks for commenting. Yes, I am also finding it very useful as I am currently in the UK and with Skype always running in the background, it is easy for my loved ones, back in India to call me any time for free πŸ™‚ And, the video calling feature is awesome… on the go… πŸ™‚

  2. I have tried to use Skype video calling over 3G network but it was not working properly for me. I always got “lost connection” just thinking may be my Cell Phone Carrier is not good.
