Re: Need Help so bad
Hello and welcome to the droid forums :) I don't use Skype, but I'm sure someone who does, will be along to help you out :)
lol thank you! I hope so!! Cause i feel so lost on how the hell i make it work!
When you sign into Skype, go to contacts, click on the contact you are trying to reach and there should be a video call option along with voice call and IM.
Are you using the Skype app or the Skype Mobile app? I believe the Skype app has more features than the Skype Mobile app.
First - from the main Skype screen after you sign in on your phone, touch the button in the top right which is three small dots, then select settings. Scroll to the bottom of the settings and make sure that the box next to "enable video calling" is checked!
If that doesn't solve the issue...
Does the device that you're calling (phone, tablet, computer) have a camera connected? If not, that could be the reason you're not able to initiate a video call.
You need to make sure the person whom you are trying to talk with has approved you to chat with them. Make his/her name does show up on your contacts.
