Skype for Android officially adds video calling to 17 more devices

Recently Skype for Android added video support, but only for a handful of phones. Shortly after, it was made “unofficially” available for other phones thanks to the great Android developement community, but Skype has “officially” added support for 17 additional devices.

There is one caveat in that you must have Android 2.3x Gingerbread on your device or it will only work with the rear camera since the front camera is not supported with Android 2.1 and 2.2.

Hit the break for the full list of devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy S II
  • Samsung Galaxy S
  • Samsung Droid Charge – Verizon
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab
  • HTC Desire (2.2)
  • HTC Thunderbolt – Verizon
  • HTC Sensation
  • HTC Evo 4G
  • HTC Evo 3D
  • HTC Incredible S
  • HTC Desire HD
  • HTC Flyer
  • LG Revolution – Verizon (2.2)
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia ray
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro
  • Acer A5

Plus the original four supported devices:

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

    Never ever install this Skype. It drains whole batter within several hours. And it is impossible to kill the process (at least on my unrooted Desire HD).
    I’d recommend to uninstall Skype out of your system. Forever.
