Skype Adds Video Calling Support for 17 Android Devices

Last week, Skype announced that it is adding video calling support for 17 Android devices that run Gingerbread (Android 2.3).  Previously, mobile video calling with Skype was only available on 4 Android devices namely:

  • HTC Desire S
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia neo
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia pro
  • Google Nexus S.

Users can download Skype 2.1 for Android in order to make video calls with their smartphones and/or tablets if they are part of the following list:

  • Skype Video Calls on Android Smartphones and TabletsAcer A5
  • HTC Desire
  • HTC Desire HD
  • HTC Evo 3D
  • HTC Evo 4G
  • HTC Flyer
  • HTC Incredible S
  • HTC Sensation
  • HTC Thunderbolt
  • LG Revolution
  • Samsung Droid Charge
  • Samsung Galaxy S
  • Samsung Galaxy S II
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia Play
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia ray.

Skype also said that most users running Android 2.2 should still be able to enable video calling in their Skype settings.  Skype 2.1 for Android detects whether your mobile device support video call automatically and unfortunately, if you are unable to see the video calling settings, it means your Android device does not meet the minimum requirements needed to make Skype video calls.
