I have T-Mobile and Skype video does work with Galaxy s3. However, I found out that you must be Skyping to another Skype account ... not just to their mobile number. Doing that only gives you a Voice call option. When going through your contact list, be sure you are selecting a Skype account contact (and they need to be on-line (if it is their computer) or have the app running if it is their mobile phone.


Hope this helps. Love my Galaxy s3/Jellybean!

Yes,  I also have the same issue.  I am using a Galaxy Note2 and my daughter is using an iphone5.  I can see her but she can not see me.  I also get a note saying other user is not able to see me, enable video however I have video enabled in both settings.  I have also tried toggling the settings to no avail.  I guess we can try tengo.

Guys, in general, if you're having the SAME problem as the poster, PLEASE don't reply. The original poster could not possibly care less to hear that you ahve the same problem, this isn't a support group. The original poster just wants someone who can help him/her.

I have an S3 as well and I think I have found the issue.


It appears that only users who have added you as a contact can see your video when you're using a galaxy S3.


Make sure the other person has accepted a contact request/add and you are on thier contacts list - in all of my testing making sure contacts were added for users on both ends resolved all video problems.


Hope this helps!

I had the same issue on my s3. The person you are trying to skype has to add you to their contacts.

Hi everyone!


i got S3 I9300 international white marble and i saw what all of you wrote here about video call on skype 

i tried to call a friend of me on skype but didn't work i tried to call few times and itself stoped immediately

so i entered here at this community to see if it has any slolution and i did go to microsoft skype direct page and downloaded skype for android from microsoft than i tried to sign in but didn;t work :EXIT OR SIGN IN AGAIN" said and i've gone to apps manage uninstalled skype updates that i downloaded from microsoft and i get skype from 1Market free apps of android and i downloaded skype not with new updates of microsoft only skype version and i signed in and there was video call button i did the video call with my sister from my S3 to her at PC and it worked perfectly good video quality and good signal voice 

i suggest you to uninstall the skype that you downloaded from playstore if it doesn;t works try to get skype version only without updates of microsoft and it will work for sure

I was trying to video call with my partner and he had the same problem where there wasn't a video icon. All he did was sync his phone with another email and everything ended up working out. I don't know if it was just a glitch, but that solved our problem. I hope this helps you!
