    Re: Skype is not working properly on my android phone?

    To run skype on android phone , you will need a supported phone running android OS version 2.1 or above with at least 27 mb of free memory space on your handset and 600 mhz or more procesing power , the supported screen resolutions are 320x240,240x400,800x480and 850x480.

    If you have a handst of samsung galaxy s with android froyo (2.2) update then skype is supported , otherwise it does not supported the 2.1 android .

    Hello Friend,


    The reason for skype not working on your phone could range from a loe end android device,insufficient memory,problem in your skype configuration settings or you have not enabled your camera to be used with Android device.


    If you are having a low end Android(below version 2.1) kindlu upgrade to android 2.2.or 2.3


    You should also check settings of your skype.If it doesn't works after that also,try reinstalling it.


    If adopting these 2 methods don't help, you must enable your Android camera to be used as webcam.Follow the steps mentioned below to enable your camera


    1) install an app called "IP Webcam" on your Android phone


    2)Configure the settings that includes login ID and password, resolution, FPS, image quality, and TCP port no which is 8080 by default.Now it could be used as webcam.


    3)Install a webcam plugin to use your android camera with Skype.


    4)Download webcam plugin.


    5)Install Plugin on your Android phone.Once it gets installed,


    6)Provide IP Address, port number, username and password you have set up in IP webcam for plugin.


    Now you can use your android device with skype


    Hope It Helps!


    Thanks and visit again

    Skype works well in Android 2.2 and above, the rear end camera is the primary camera and actually all the android devices gives the preference to the rear end camera.

    When Skype starts, the rear end camera will be first accessed to it.thats y majority of the handsets have Rear camera working for Skype. Android 2.3 version gives you options to choose between cameras when you are in Skype video call.

    Given that your mobile works on 2.2, its better to get your mobile upgraded, that will finally solve all the problems associated with Skype.

    Min. Requirement for Skype

    >> Android version 2.1 and later


    >> 27 MB free


    >> Processor 600 Mhz


    If you have all this then there is a problem in app which you have downloaded.


    Download again from Google Play Store and install it.

    Reboot your Device once installed

    Try this potential fix: settings>>apps>>skype>>clear data and cache>> reopen skype>>log on.

    I was having a lot of problems then I did this and it works fine now, running evo 3d ics.

    Hope this helps

    Make sure that you have installed the Skype app on your phone properly.
    Check whether you have installed the app with out any issues or not.
    Once uninstall the app and then fetch for he best version and then get it and install it.
    Make sure that your installation process should not have any issues such that in future you may not have any issues like these.
    If necessary change the settings of the app/ your phone to make your front camera work properly.
    Hope this will be helpful to you............

    »»Clean cache memory before using

    »»i have to tell you that in android 2.3 ,its ask for rear camera or front camera.
    in android 2.2 ,it is default settings for rear camera.

    »» to activate front camera,login in skype and open settings for skype.after this enable video calling.
    after this it will ask you for using rear or front camera.
    choose whatever you want to choose.
    thats it.
