Skype App update today for PS Vita

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.

Didnt realise there was a Skype app. Didnt even know there was a mic on the Vita. It's the little handheld that could. Or couldn't, as it's small library sadly suggests.

Some fantastic games coming to Vita or already there. Uncharted is great. LittleBigPlanet is also pretty amazing. Assassin's Creed III Liberations looks stunning, as does Need for Speed: Most Wanted. Some hope next year too with Tearaway and more. I reckon it's time is still to come.

Yeah, all handhelds seem to get a really rocky start. I would quite like to see more original games though. Gravity Rush is the main game I'm interested in. Also that weird app Ecolibrium has definately caught my eye. Granted, Persona 4 The Golden isn't original but I am definately picking that one up. Love Persona

Continued support of the services offered on Vita is a must if its to continue to be a well used and well loved device. While Skype is hardly thrilling this is still something I like to see.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
