Skype for Android update sends photos, videos Skype announces update to Android app.
Skype 2.6 for Android has been announced, bringing the ability to send photos, videos or files to friends and family from your Android device over Wi-Fi or 3G.

The update also brings optimization for Android devices that are powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset, improving battery life and video quality. These improvements will be seen with Android devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Motorola XOOM and Acer Iconia Tab.

More Android devices have also been "whitelisted" for video support by Skype's Engineering Team. Latest additions to the list include the HTC Amaze 4G and Motorola DROID RAZR.

"We're excited about these new enhancements, adding even more value to the things you can already do on Skype for Android like video calling, sending and receiving instant messages for free or making phone calls to mobiles and landlines worldwide at great Skype rates." Skype's announcement reads.

"We've brought this out just in time for the upcoming holiday season, so you can share your special moments with your loved ones."
