Skype Video Calling Available On The Vita Today

Skype announced today that Skype video calling will be available on PlayStationVita today April 24th, 2012. Available on the PlayStation Network store as a free Vita app download, this will be the first portable gaming device to feature Skype video calling. Both video calling and voice calling capabilities will be available on the Wi-Fi and 3G models.

Skype on PS Vita runs in “background mode” for users while gaming or using other applications and users have the capability to “pause” a game, conduct a call and then return to their previous activity. Additionally, PS Vita features both front and rear facing cameras, which allows users to switch back and forth between the two during a Skype call. This is a great benefit of never missing a call even when playing a game or using another app.

You can check out some screens and a video of the app below:
