    Diehard Motorola Droid user 8 years hoping someone can tell me what happened. Camera not functioning on skype . I can see them but they cannot see me. Surprisingly seemingly my son and his third year of college computer programming tells me it's a glitch possibly because of course I upgrade his phone every two years as well promised I would continue to always pay for it as long as he was in school but much to my surprise kids today do not use Skype type social media or voice recognition often. I love them both it has just been recently back into face to face communication interaction with grandchildren and new friends now I find out are you into it I cannot Skype and most but not all have iPhone junk in my opinion Long story short will there be an upgrade for this issue or am I screwed out of face to face communication socialization with my family and friends till next years upgrade ? Just found this out today very distraught

    Can you tell us what you've tried so far to remedy the problem? Was the app downloaded from the Play Store directly, or downloaded from your browser? Or are you using the browser version? Have you tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it?
    A little more information will help us to better help you.
    :)

    Hello --is his phone's camera working for pics and selfies ? You can try another app such as Viber to eliminate it being a Skype issue ...connection has to be good for his video to work ..so is he on good wifi ?

    I have Skyped with three friends and my son silent night can only talk on skype are there three of my friends I can see them we can talk but they cannot see me so I'm guessing sons camera same thing everything when your goal was transferred from droid I razors def to our new turbos we are not positive because he does not Skype as often unless I make him from college and then he free redownload app and I have never it has always been transferring from phone to phone 2 upgrades I no in the first 6 months of last year it worked because I used it quite often

    Play Store 10 years ago and I don't believe I have ever changed anything but my son constantly for the last 5 years I have papers for as long as he's in school has deleted and redownloaded to Skype numerous times

    Google Hangouts has video chat. I believe that works on iPhone as well as Android devices.
