Sony has announced that the PS Vita Skype app will be updated later today, adding a host of new features.
First up, you can now create a new account directly from your PS Vita system, as well as search for friends on Skype and add them to your Contacts. You can also use "Favourite", "Online" and "All" to manage your list of contacts.
If you want to change your profile photo, you can now use your PS Vita system's front or rear camera to take a new photo and replace it. Or you can simply use the photos in your PS Vita collection.
In addition, you can now add Skype Credit from your PS Vita and make calls to mobiles and landlines if the person you're calling is not online. You can also receive or delete voice messages directly from your PS Vita.
It's good to see this app continue to be supported, especially since Microsoft now own Skype.
