Is there a charge for using video call on my android phone?

I lately purchased an LG Optimus L9 android phone and did install SKYPE.

After my first trial I got a message informing me that I have 20 free video calls left.

My question: after 20 video calls will have to pay to use video calls on my phone?

Thanks.

Hi Jacques,
Can you please double check if the message said "20 free video calls" or "20 free video messages"? It should be the latter, but maybe you used Skype for Android with non-English user interface language.

Skype Video messages are the video equivalent of a voicemail and you need Skype Premium for extended access to these.
Skype video calls are free when they are between two users. You only need Skype Premium for group video calls.

Keep your Skype up to date
