The Vita is Getting Skype
If you log in today to the Vita App store you will notice that Skype has finally added their much anticipated app the the store. You can now talk to others through video or straight audio using the Vita’s internal cameras. Skype on PS Vita system 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 system 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.
“Our users appreciate being able to access Skype features wherever and whenever they choose,” said Manrique Brenes, senior director of emerging opportunities at Skype. “With the launch of Skype for PS Vita, we are taking another step towards our ultimate goal of making Skype video calling available on every platform, all over the world, and meeting the demands of existing PlayStation users to offer video on a gaming console.”
