This is a completely stock, unrooted, Nexus S 4G on Android 2.3.4


I can't say I'm surprised. Skype is notorious for throwing stuff out half baked.

We have made an update available in the Android market which means it should be possible to install and get video calling on most versions of Nexus S including the 4G


If anybody still has problems after installing the update on a Nexus S device we would appreciate you posting the exact model number of your device so we can look into it. More info here

It isn't working for me either on my Nexus S 4G.


It seems they only activated the feature for the Nexus S.

We are sorry, the Nexus S 4G is not yet supported. We plan to support it in the next release.
