Just few weeks ago, Skype launched for the first time the availability to make video calls but only via a few phones. Now Skype has finally updated their application to add new devices. The list of devices is long, such as the Galaxy S and SII. both the EVO 4G and EVO 3D, the DROID Charge just to mention a few. On Android 2.2 (Froyo), only the back camera will work. This is because only devices running Android OS 2.3 or higher allow apps to access the front facing camera.
(These handsets already support video calling)
- Samsung Google Nexus S
- Sony Ericsson Xperia neo
- Sony Ericsson Xperia pro
- HTC Desire S
Video calling is now available on the following Android devices:
- Samsung Galaxy S II
- Samsung Galaxy S
- Samsung Droid Charge – Verizon
- Samsung Galaxy Tab
- HTC Desire (2.2)

Just recently Skype announced the availability of making video calls on the new Skype 2.0 version but only for a few devices like Nexus S and Xperia Neo and Pro. Now, thanks to a user at XDA developers, we can have the same features on many devices, included Samsung Galaxy S ( Captivate in my case).
I tasted today and really works. You have to option of switch cameras from front to back.

Finally, the app that all Android user were waiting for.. Now Skype is not longer exclusive with Verizon Wireless. Skype just launche its Android application only compatible with Android OS 2.1 and higher. In the USA making calls are only allowed using WiFi, while in the rest of the world you can do it using 3G, just becareful with how many MB you are using.
I have been testing Skype in my Samsung Galaxy Captivate and works great. Clear and fast.
Thanks skype. This is the application i was waiting for after switching from iOS to Android.

Skype is already available on the iPhone and Android devices as the G1 or myTouch 3G. However, out there, are many Blackberry users still waiting Skype to be released. According with Cnet, Skype hasn’t forgotten of Blackberry users. Back in May 2009, a beta version of Skype ( only available for some Blackberry users ) was released. That version had some problems with SMS, or transfering files. Now a better version would be release eventually. We just need to wait and wait. Come one Skype, as a Blackberry user, we want to make VoiP calls too!.
