The calling experience may have been improved for some, but still video calling on the Motorola Xoom causes the application to crash and have to be forcibly stopped.  This is the second update that hasn't worked, is there any news on a version that will work?

 

My Xoom is running latest version of Skype on Android 3.2.

Re: Skype 2.7 for Android - Improved calling experience

The new v2.7.0.907 for Android seems to disable the Caller ID setting that I had established years ago on my paid SkypeOut account. I can set it back to my verified cell phone number, by logging into my Skype account online, but I need to do this after every use of Skype for Android v2.7.0.907. I've temporarily switched back to the previous version (v2.6.0.95), which did not have this problem. I have both a regular cell phone, which is my main phone, and a Motorola Triumph smartphone, which I'm just trying out via WiFi at this time.

Re: Skype 2.7 for Android - Improved calling experience

After this update my number is also showing restricted even though I pay for a Skype phone number. Additionally this update has broken my ability to change the call volume. I'm running the Transformer Prime under android 4.0.3. This update has almost made skype unusable on the prime when paired with all the other issues skype has on the Prime.

Re: Skype 2.7 for Android - Improved calling experience

 I updated my android tonight and now I get calls and messages from people not on my friends list... will this be fixed soon? I have to be invisible to keep people away. .. thats not good as my friends can't see I'm on... Oh and my privacy setting is set for friends only for everything.
