I just bought the new Samsung galaxy S2 and downloaded Skype Android but all I can do is Voice call people, there is no Video Call even though the phone has a rear and front camera. How do I fix this?

I have a international unlocked & unbranded Samsung Galaxy S2. I too have the same problem ... I can't seem to make video calls on Skype.


Does anyone know if Skype video calling is supported on the Galoaxy S2?

As of 4th August 2011 , Skype has released a new official update in the android market    (ver - which supports the video calling option in Samsung galaxy s2 and it gives the user 3 options while doing a video call

1. Use front camera (2mp )

2. Use back camera (8mp)

3. Don't show your video


Happy Video calling using ur Samsung Galaxy S2 , no more hacked or unofficial skype software , go in for the official Skype software !!!!

Unfortunately not. I have a samsung galaxy tab 10.1 and of august 4th it should work with video. I downloaded the newest version but no difference at all. No camera! I contacted Samsung and they advised me to go to Skype and Skype advised me to go to Samsung. So that will not work. Anybody good ideas to help me out?

Hey Sanchez


I've downloaded the official skype on my phone which I only received yesterday -- but I get no video skype option. Sound works beautifully. Task manager has nothing running -- perhaps there is something else interfering with the camera? Any advice appreciated.

Simply uninstalling skype and reinstalling it solved the problem. I'm now very happy with skype and video calling.
