Skype released updated software for all Android devices. It will allow the devices to use voice and calling features on 3G and WiFi. Prior to the update, U.S. Android users were limited to making voice calls on WiFi.

Skype’s Voice-over-Internet will now work on Android tablets (Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab). Skype briefly worked on 3G for tablets before users were suddenly blocked from making or receiving calls. So this update is great news for tablet users.

Skype’s new software will make placing and receiving calls easier. Any GSM network can be used regardless of the user’s home carrier. Verizon may run into a problem integrating GSM into their CDMA network. It is still unsure if any problems will arise.

Regardless, Android tablet users can now rejoice as they will be able to make and receive voice calls to and from landlines and make Skype-to-Skype voice calls to PCs or other mobile devices.
