Skype 5.0 Connects With Android's Address Book

A month after Microsoft released its "remastered" Skype 5.0 app for the iPhone, the company has turned its attention to Android smartphones. The new version blurs the line between an Android device's native contact list and Skype's own friends list, announced Skype senior product marketing manager, Pierre-Eric Jacoupy, in a company blog post. "Starting with Skype 5.0 for Android, you'll be able to connect Skype to your phone address book. This means it's easier than ever to find contacts you already know on Skype so you can start chatting, calling and sharing instantly," he wrote.
