Android marketplace( Google Play) shows Skype video calling suported for Samsung Galaxy Y: Android-2.3.6( Gingerbread). But actually it only supports voice calls. The reason is that Galaxy Y doesn't have front camera and 832MHz processor( comparatively low speed). But I must say voice call quality and experience is nice. I am sharing details about voice calls based on my Skype voice call experience with 2G network.

It's not officially tested and supported but it *may* work. Judging from the technical specifications of the phone it has too little processing power for videocalling. So if it works the quality and performance will be low.

Thanks Hussey,
Tango works real well. Now I can use my Samsung Galaxy Y Duos to make a video call. This phone has a front camera.
Regards,
Yash
