Skype, a hugely practical video (and internet) calling solution, got an update today, bringing the app to version and bringing a few key improvements to the table. The most noticeable improvement in this release is an updated (and enhanced) call interface, adding functionality and panache to the screen every user sees when placing or receiving a call.

Besides an updated call screen, the latest release also adds much-needed video call compatibility with Samsung's Epic 4G Touch (Sprint's version of the Galaxy SII), as well as enhanced call quality. If you haven't already, hit the Market link below and grab the update while it's hot!

    Sounds like a good update; but what about support for modern technology - like bluetooth headsets. I want to be able to have a video chat and have the audio go through the bluetooth headset. This really shouldn't be an issue.

    Either I've already got this version (nothing new or exciting), or it's not showing on the Canadian market yet...(thanks for the post, just the same)
