Skype has rolled out an interesting update today to their iPhone app in the version 3.0.1. It adds an extra feature to Skype’s video capabilities which were first introduced in December last year. The new feature let’s you make video calls to TVs, of course, the one’s which support Skype (number of Samsung sets do the job).
While FaceTime clearly has edge over Skype when it comes to the call quality, Skype is commonly preferred for the cross-platform calling capabilities which have further expanded with support for TVs.
You will of course need a web-cam attached with your TV to be able to show yourself to the other party. List of supported sets of TVs and web-cams can be found here.
