Skype for Android adds more devices to the list that supports video calls

Well this is news for me. Whenever I try video-calling via Skype on a new Android phone or tablet and couldn’t get it to run, I blame it on the device. Like on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. It turns out that the primary culprit is Skype for Android and not the device at all.

Skype is readily available for Android 2.2 devices and up but the video-calling feature is only functional to a handful of devices. With every Skype update, new devices are added into the list that will support video chat.

width="200"Right now, here are the devices available locally that supports Skype video calls:

  • Acer Iconia A500 Tablet
  • Samsung Nexus S
  • Samsung Galaxy S
  • Samsung Galaxy SII
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 7
  • HTC Desire
  • HTC Desire S
  • HTC Desire HD
  • HTC Sensation
  • HTC Flyer
  • LG Optimus Black (landscape only)
  • LG Optimus 3D (landscape only)
  • LG Optimus 2x (landscape only)
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia neo
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia ray
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro
For a full list including international devices, head over to Skype at the Android Market.
