We are happy to announce the availability of the new 2.5 update to our Skype for Android app. This update adds videocalling support for several new devices (especially a wide range of Android tablet devices. We heard you there!) and improves the bluetooth support. Besides we also did several improvements all around the app:
So please head over to the Android Market (or scan the QR code) on your device and get your Skype upgrade. Again we are looking forward to your feedback on this release. Did you try video calling on your device already? Does your Bluetooth device work with Skype?
I updated the Skype software to the latest version 188.8.131.52 on my HTC EVO 4G phone.
The only issue I have is how do I get the bluetooth headset to work for making Skype calls?

So while you updated Skype, Finally, to allow my Iconia to use video calling, you updated it for HC 3.1, rather than HC 3.2? Which most users are getting to with Acer starting to push OTA in the US, and already has in many other countries. What's the deal?
Video calls work fine on Xoom. And yes Tegra 2 devices are now supported.
I have seen one bug : all Skype is stuck in landscape after a video call. If I want to put it back in portrait view. I have to force close Skype and restart it.
it's now 3 months after the skype 2.0 release that introduced a lot of issues for people, and not a single bug/usability issue has been addressed (other than video-related ones). yet this forum is filled with over 4000 posts, the vast majority of which are from people complaining about the same 10-15 things that skype refuses to even acknowledge.
there are plenty of decent skype alternatives out there. i am done waiting for you to make a usable, bug-free client and moving on, along with the majority of my friends.
It says it supports Lg Optimus 2x, but i tried it and it was stuck first and after i restart the video options are gone......not even in settings....???
what happened....if crashes you disable video forever or?
and where's the supported bluetooth phones list???
