New skype wifi client !!

skype via voip on n95 now exists !! and its free !!

Yes, finally, skype have released a new version of the symbian app for nokia n95, n96, n97 etc where you can actually call skype-skype for free using wifi/ voip facility of the handset!

the new app no longer dials a local access number to make skype calls (which was stupid and used to either eat your mins or use your credit). its now all via voip.
no more silly skypeout charges.

(and they will end support for the old skype version by end of 2010. )

goto skype.com/m from mobile to download.

i have, and tested and can confirm it definately works. no skype credit and it did not call through my network operator (i used a dead simcard). made a good halfhour call through wifi!

FINALLY!!!

no need for fring etc.
(im hoping no one else has already done this thread or ill look like a tw4t)

Installed this app on my N95 and made a skype out call (over a O2 3G data connection) to my mate's landline in Australia. We had a half hour chat and the quality was great with no discernible lag. He didn't realise it was a Skype call until I told him near the end of our conversation.

Two thumbs up for this! It's probably even better over wi-fi.
