Android App Tablet Review: Skype

by Caitlin M. Foyt

Skype on your Android tablet is the same old program it's always been, but that’s no bad thing.

It's a great instant messenger tool and an inexpensive way to make calls to foreign countries. Registered users can call other registered users for free, and because millions use Skype, it's easy to find people you know.

Conveniently, the app's layout is almost identical to the program you may have used on your computer or smartphone.

The app's sound quality is crystal clear, the audio doesn't skip and you won't sound like a robot to your friends and family. Some Android tablets may be missing its video-calling capabilities, but the app is often updated to support new devices launched on the market.
