Users of Skype can head on in to the Android Market and pick up the newest version of the application. You will notice a newer calling interface, better performance throughout the app and other minor bug fixes. Anyone still rocking Skype on their device?

    I still use it for quick vid and voice chatting internationally.  It’s just easier for my friends not to have to sign out of one service and into another when we are chatting.

    Does Skype work on the new droid 4?

  • Philip Van Luke

    Do any video chat options work Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt yet without that goddamn screeching feedback that I get when trying to vchat with my wife? I bought two of these damn phones just to video chat, and the audio feedback is so horrible i just gave up.

    I just got a RAZR MAXX.  Are there suggestions for other apps besides SKYPE to video chat?

    • PyroHoltz

      Google Talk (AKA Gchat)

      Allows you to video chat with your google contacts.

        Is that the same thing as Google Voice?  I don’t see Google Talk or Gchat on the Market.

        • PyroHoltz

          All Android phones should have it pre-installed. It’ll be in your app drawer called, “Talk” with a cartoon bubble as the icon.  Not sure if the RAZR supports video chat or not.

          No, voice is not the same thing …

          Sometimes, it goes under the name Vtok?  Might want to check for that.  But it usually comes pre-loaded on phones.  It’s the app that looks like a white chat bubble with “talk” inside it. And the Razr does support it.

      Try out Messenger which comes along when you install Google+. It allows you to join a Google Hangout.

  • Like video working on the Transformer Prime?

    I use Skype, but a modded version.

    • what are the benefits? 

      • Michael Forte

        Extra options, prevents Skype from starting on boot, compatibility with more devices. It can be found here : 
        http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1148708. The dev who did the mod is aware of the update and is probably going to update it at some point to the newer version. I’m actually curious of the difference between the modded version and this new official update.
