Users can download the free app from the Android Market or Skype’s own mobile site. A host of HTC devices -- including the EVO, the Sensation and Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt — are now supported, as are the LG Revolution, Samsung’s Galaxy family of phones and Sony Ericsson’s Xperia line. Calls should work on WiFi and 3G.

Skype also said that most phones running Android 2.2 (Froyo) or above should be able to use video calls, though if you don’t see the setting in your app, then you’re probably out of luck.

Skype also recently released an app for the iPad, competing with Apple’s Facetime app.
