Android Tablet Problem with video

I have an android tablet which had SKYPE installed when I bought it about 3 years ago.


I can connect to the person that I am calling OK, and they can see me on their screen, however, I also only see myself and not the person that I am calling.


I cannot find any setting to alter this, can anyone help please?


Thank you

I have a Verizon tablet and almost everything about Skype works well except my partner, who has the same tablet can see me but I can only see myself. This is also true when I try video calling someone with a PC. Please help; there is no way to access settings from the app

I found the solution. There is a tiny little icon top right corner that turns out to be settings. One choice for video is background. If you uncheck that option you will be able to see the person you are calling.
