The folks at Skype have revealed that the Android version of the voice, text, and video communication application has surpassed 70 million downloads.

The app first launched in October 2010, and while it got off to a really bumpy start (a resource-hogging app combined with a small amount of compatible devices was annoying) it has since come a long way.

The app is now compatible with over 1,300 devices from many different manufacturers, and it has been localized for 16 different languages. The infographic reveals that Samsung dominates the boards when it comes to usage of the Android version.

The Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, and the Galaxy Ace are the top four out of many, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Galaxy S3 up there soon. Check out more of the infographic at the Skype Blog.

Skype have also put together a tips and tricks article for those who want to get the most out of their Skype experience. You can find that on thier blog here.
