    Re: Will the Skype application run on android handset?

    Skype will not work with all Samsung Android devices. For skype application to run, the android phone should have android OS 2.2 or higher ones. That means, if your Samsung Galaxy S android handset is running on android 2.2, then Skype is supported in your Samsung device. But if you are making use of Samsung Galaxy S device that is powered by Android 2.1, then signing in to Skype will not be possible. You can find the list of supported devices by Skype for android by tapping on the button that denotes ‘More’ in the application page.

    Yeah,
    Of course you can use Skype.
    Samsung Galaxy S is such a Good smartphone with higher configurations.
    Skype works on Android 2.2 or higher.
    Android 2.3.6 Ginger bread is available for Galaxy S
    . you can upgrade your device with it.
    Search for Skype in Google PLay.
    It is available for free.
    Galaxy S has a front camera for video calling so it is totally compatible with it.
    You can use all the features of Skype with Galaxy S
    Go for it.

    Hello friend,
    When we talked about the Skype application we must have to know that on every Android phone it doesn't support (lower models of Android Phones) but on upper models of Android Phones this application runs very smoothly. As Samsung Galaxy S is a very good Android Smartphone with a higher processor and up to date in version. Skype runs very smoothly on the above listed model.





    Thanks.

    According to me,

    All Samsung devicea doesn't support Skype application

    Min. version requirement for Android Mobile is Android 2.2 or later

    Andif your device fulfill the above condition you can install the app to your device

    You can download and install the application from "Google Play Store"

    Reboot yuor device once installed

    HI FRIEND,

    If you want to run the skype on your mobile then there must be atleast 2.2 android version
    in your mobile ....
    but samsung galaxy S have 2.1 android version so you can not use the skype application

    so you first upgrade your version from 2.1 to 2.2.1 atleast and then try to run skype
    on your mobile......
    also for video calling a front camera was needed........

    best of luck....

    Yes, you can have skype on your android handset.
    Get the app to your phone and install it much care such that you may not get any issues in future.
    By this app you can have the video call with your phone.
    Make sure that you have to turn on the front camera when you have started your video call.
    Hope this will be helpful to you.........

    Re: Will the Skype application run on android handset?

    Yes you can use skype application for Android devices having android version 2.2 or more..

    Due to Android restrictions, devices running Android 2.2 will only be able to use the rear-facing camera.
    Devices with Android 2.3 or higher will be able to use both front and rear-facing cameras.

    Yes partially it is true.
    The Skype application will run on android handset having android OS 2.2 or higher versions.
    But if your handset is not OS 2.2 or higher version they Skype will not work in your phone.
    Go to apps.
    Then press more option to check that your device is supported by Skype or not.

    The Skype application runs on android handset but the android handset need to have android 2.2 version or later versions.
    If the device is having the lower version then the Skype will not work in your device.
    Go to home screen.
    Tap on applications.
    Tap on more option.
    Here you can able to see that your phone is compatible with Skype or not.
