When video chatting was initially released on Skype for Android there was only official support for four devices. That didn’t stop many of you however from enabling video calling ‘un-officially’.
Skype has just updated their application, version 188.8.131.52, with added support for 17 more smartphones and tablets. Skype is forewarning however that you if your device is running Android 2.2 (Froyo), only the back camera will work, as only Android 2.3+ allows access to the front facing camera.
The lucky devices, and their owners, to get video calling are:
– Samsung Galaxy S II
– Samsung Galaxy S
– Samsung Droid Charge – Verizon
– Samsung Galaxy Tab
– HTC Desire (2.2)
