Skype adds video calling support for more Android devices

Skype today issued an update to its official Android update adding support for more devices. The exact number of new supported devices is 17, and it includes the likes of HTC Desire, Samsung Galaxy S, LG Revolution and Acer Iconia Smart.

Full List of supported Android devices:

Already available:

  • 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)
  • 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

If your Android device is not in the above list, you should still be able to make video call. All you have to do is enable video calling in your Skype settings. Just go to “Skype settings” after launching the app and select “enable video calling”.

But there is a catch, unlike certified devices, the video quality on non-certified devices might be below standard or you might be able to use only the back camera.
