Re: Introduction to Skype for Kindle HD

I've just bought the kindle fire hd and I am also pc / tablet / android savvy - I have looked in every section and Skype is most definitely not preloaded ..

Skype is not recognized in any of the search bars in the app or help section ..

Through Amazon download apparently my device is not compatible ..

I feel like I am going mad - is the answer out there ?

Re: Introduction to Skype for Kindle HD

I downloaded Skype to my new Kindle Fire HD and logged in.  I am unable to see my contacts or the regular screen that I am used to seeing (I would call it my home screen where i can see my contacts on the left hand side and the ability to start a call.  All I see is information for pay services.  I can't get past that?  Is this some type of add that I have to get past?  I do not want to purchase additional services at this time, I just want to use my Kindle to Skype.  Very frustrated.  Please help!

Re: Introduction to Skype for Kindle HD

Dear Skype - after much frustration, I have finally given up on using the app available on the Kindle store. It crashes constantly and is incapable of completing a call. The old app worked great - this one simply doesn't work. This is clear from the many comments posted as reviews and on this forum. I love Skype on my laptop, but having it to go on my Kindle HD is also very important. Anything you can do to fix this would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!
