I have a SAMSUNG galaxy ace GT S5830 but on SKYPE SETTINGS there s no option to
activate video calling.
Is there a way to run video calls on this smartphone?
Solved! Go to Solution.
brother! m aslo facing the same problem that u have discussed about Samsung Galaxy Ace. I think video calling facility is not yet been available for GALAXY ACE. because the list available for new android sets (Having video calling capability on skpe )does not include Galaxy ACE. So rather we have to waite for some time or we have to buy samsung Galaxy tab to enjoy video calling experience at skpe..
I just checked the Samsung Galaxy Ace features and it shows there is no front camera on this model.
The Android Market (where you download Skype for Andriod platform phones) also has a list of currently supported phones for video calling. Here is the current list of phones.
(These handsets already support video calling)
Samsung Nexus S
Samsung Galaxy S 4G
Samsung Galaxy S
Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate
Samsung Droid Charge
Samsung Galaxy S II
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 WIFI
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Verizon
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Sprint
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus
HTC Desire S
HTC Incredible S
HTC Desire HD
HTC EVO 4G
HTC EVO 3D
HTC Sensation 4G
Sony Ericsson Xperia neo
Sony Ericsson Xperia pro
Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY (Rest of world)
Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY (China)
Sony Ericsson Xperia ray
Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro
The following devices have also been white-listed for video calling in this release:
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (T-Mobile)
HTC SHOOTER (KDDI)
Sony Ericsson Xperia Live with Walkman
Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V
Acer Iconia Tablet (A500)
LG Optimus Black LANDSCAPE ONLY
LG Optimus 3D LANDSCAPE ONLY
LG Optimus 2x LANDSCAPE ONLY
Motorola Droid3 LANDSCAPE ONLY

I hope this helps.
Too bad that Samsung Ace is not on that list! It's a pretty new phone & I like it (i'm sure I'm not the only one!).
I just tryed yahoo messenger video call and it works very good even if doesn't have a front camera (it's true that I had to install a plug in for this feature, but that isn't such a big deal... easy & fast with android market app.).
I'm sure that skype team can provide (fast, i hope ^^) an update (for the soft or a plug in) so the video feature can be used on other phones (Samsung Ace included ).
So, dear Skype team, I'm (we're) waiting!
