Hi folks


Skype for Android now available to download, with a fix for the orientation issues on the Galaxy Nexus.  Please let us know if this clears your problem?

The version you find on Google Play runs just fine on Nexus 7

wait for your platform to mature... You're an early adopter and you need to wait for software vendors like Adobe and Skype to catch up. Really the Nexus shouldnt have been released until the software vendors were ready, but that might've been a long wait. Companies like Skype and Adobe only seem to do updates when they really have to.

Yep I have the same problem no sending video. As well as all the other bugs in the phone :-(

We'd like to get video working on the Galaxy Nexus ASAP and we could need your help to achieve this.

We're therefor interested in the exact device ID your Nexus device shows to the Android OS. If you consider yourself an advanced Android user feel free to download the "Android System Info" app:
We are interested in the "device signature".

Thanks in advance.

Same issue here... My Galaxy Nexus has the same values as the above screenshot in the BuildInfos... but I can't find anything labeled "device signature".  In Settings-->About phone, there are two extra values that are not in the screenshot from the prior post:

Baseband version: I9250XXKK1

Kernel Version: 3.0.1-ge2433f2 android-build@apa28 #1

Could anyone please let me know if this issue is resolved?

The Galaxy Nexus is using Ice Cream Sandwich Android (4.0) which is not yet supported by Skype because they have developed the app for Android to be supported until the Honeycomb (3.0 and 3.1). Wait for an update that will fix all your issues.

That's my one. I hope this is what you're looking for.

I can't wait to use skype on my galaxy nexus, cheers.

I have the same fingerprint as GlobalTommy

Skype works but video from the front or back camera doesn't work and almost all of the times I couldn't see the video of the other party.
