Skype iOS Update Brings Bluetooth Headset Calls

Illustration for article titled Skype iOS Update Brings Bluetooth Headset Calls

If you're a very important businessperson, or just like blinking LEDS sticking out of the side of your head, Skype updated their iOS app just for you.


Skype threw Bluetooth support into the iOS version of their app today for the iPhone 4 and 3GS (meh). The iPad 2 and 4th generation iPod touch are also included in the Bluetooth-enabling update (cool). Just for good measure, video image stabilization is included so when the kids run off with your iPhone during a video call, the grandparents don't end up getting motion sickness.

The bad news is if you don't have any Skype credit, expect to start seeing ads at the top of the app. [Skype via TechCrunch]

If this makes voice calls work with car bluetooth systems it is a practical thing, not all geeky like the article implies.
