Skype Video Calls Come To More Android Devices

Finally, Skype has launched video calls for 17 Android devices. Now that's good news that many of us have been impatiently waiting for. The new version of Skype is compatible with a wider range of Android handsets while getting rid of some minor bugs and glitches, so hopefully everyone will have an overall more pleasant Skype experience. And tablet users also have something to smile about: Skype video chat is now available on the HTC Flyer and Samsung Galaxy Tab. 

Having opened its doors to new Android devices, Skype is taking big strides to remain cross-platform and provide the same popular services to every kind of device. And despite the emergence of Google video chat, there's no denying that Skype reigns supreme in the world of audio and video communication. Surprisingly, Skype has made its new version available to every Android phone running 2.2 – even those without front-facing cameras. That's definitely an odd move on their part and I highly doubt that people will actually video chat with the screen turned away from them. Enough speculation, let's get to the interesting stuff.

Here's a full list of all the Android devices now fully supported by Skype:

  • Acer A5
  • HTC Desire (2.2)
  • HTC Desire HD
  • HTC Evo 3D
  • HTC Evo 4G
  • HTC Flyer
