Symbian^3 Devices Get YouTube and Skype Updates

If you own a Nokia phone (one of the high-end ones obviously) and have been waiting to make internet calls like other smartphone users, Skype has come to your rescue - according to GSMArena.

Calling on the internet becomes a breeze

After quite some waiting time, Skype has finally launched their app for Symbian^3 users. Skype allows you to make internet calls over 3G or Wi-Fi with support for Skype-to-Skype and SkypeOut calls. The SILK codec allows it to adapt to changing network conditions and provides reportedly better audio quality. Skype is available for the Nokia N8, C7 and C6-01 handsets and you can download the apps from their site.

Better video rendering for Symbian^3 users

The YouTube app already existed for Symbian^3 phones, but the version 2.4.10 update has improvement in the visual department, making it better suited for bigger screens. Also, the transition between two screens is a lot faster. The source also tells us that video resolution has been increased, but it’s not confirmed by Google. This app is available for download on this site.

There’s something for Symbain^1 users too, they can upgrade their Skype and try out the SILK codec. If you’ve done an update, please tell us about your experience in the comments section below.
