Take a look at the instructions here on how to perform a video call on Skype for Android: https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA11019/How-do
Report back here and tell us which step fails for you and make sure you are calling a Skype user that is on the latest Skype version as well.
Uhm... I wish Skype supported Android 4.x so that I (and others) can switch back from TANGO because it actually works on Android 4.0/4.1. Don't really understand Microsoft's philosophy not supporting roughly 60% of the mobile market.
I noticed that using a certified device mentioned on the Google Play cannot complete a video call on other devices with different softwares. I tried calling from Skype Android to Skype PC, Skype Android to Skype iOS and vice versa on either android, pc, ipod, iphone and it cannot connect properly the video call. I hope Skype can improve the video call on all software platform.
Hi, I just purchased a netbook computer from Wolvol in in NY running on Android 4.0.3. It has a built in camera and an icon for the Google Apps store (now known as Play) and for browsing. I am trying to have someone download Skype for Android 4.0.3 so that the device could be used for videoconferencing. But I'm having an enormously difficult time teaching a non-technical person at a distance how to do this. This is especially a problem since I don't have a similar device to use as a basis to talk them through. Could you please let me know the steps I must follow to download Skype? I hope it is possible to do what I want to do, including video. Otherwise I fear I might have wasted my money on this device.
P.S.: I am attaching the short user's manual where we see icons to get to the Apps Store.
