Skype for Android just got a serious update, for the first time giving Microsoft’s VOIP app a true tablet interface. On top of the UI changes, version 3.0 also lets you log in and merge with your Microsoft account, and adds support for Skype’s SILK wideband audio codec. The company says it gives you the optimal voice quality that your connection can sustain. It’s too bad a separate portrait layout isn’t part of the package (the app stays locked in landscape), but we’re just glad to see such a popular application being rescued from stretched-out phone app status.
