Just bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 because I had seen that Skype supported video calls on this device. I downloaded latest Skype (today) from Android Market, installed it, and I can call, but there's no video options anywhere, nor I see any video being sent or received.


What's the current status of video calling for Android 3.1 on the Samsung Galaxy Tab?

The simple answer to this is that Sykpe video calling is not supported on the Galaxy TAB 10.1 but does work well on the Galaxy TAB, the 7 inch version.

So the question is when will there be a software update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 so video calling is possible?

Title: Skype download
Post by: srinu on 22/11/11 I downloaded skype from android market.

I accidentally removed the application from the application menue (didnt uninstall) and cant find on the tab after that

I tried to re-download it, but while installing it, a message says: out of space , try to clear some space. However, I do have a lot of space.

Resetting the tab to factory setting is off the table, as I did this many times and I had hard time reinstalling and setting applications
