Skype has released an updated version of its VoIP app for Symbian smartphones. The update brings support for newer Symbian phones such as the Nokia N8, C7, and E5. The new app has an interface designed to play well with phones that have larger displays and also uses the same SILK codec used in the desktop version of Skype as well as Skype for Android and iOS.

Like other versions of Skype, the Symbian app lets users make free voice calls to other Skype users over a WiFi or 3G data connection. You can also engage in text-based instant messaging sessions for free. Skype to phone calls will be billed at SkypeOut rates.

You can download Skype for Symbian by visiting skype.com/m with your phone’s browser.
