    Skype for Android Updated to 2.5; Video Support & More Enhancements to 14 New Devices


    Skype for Android just got better, and covers more devices now. The newest version of Skype, 2.5, is available now, and it brings with it a few improvements as well as video talk capabilities and compatibility with 14 more devices. First, here is a list of the newly added devices (of note is that several of them are Android tablets that have been sorely missing the software):
    • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
    • HTC Nexus One
    • HTC Shooter
    • Sony Ericsson Xperia Live with Walkman
    • Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V
    • LG Optimus Black
    • LG Optimus 3D
    • LG Optimus 2x
    • Motorola Photon
    • Motorola Droid 3
    • Motorola Bionic
    • Motorola Xoom
    • Motorola Atrix
    • Acer Iconia

    Here's a list of the new improvements to the app:
    • Enhanced video experience
    • Rotate and zoom during video calls
    • Support for Nvidia Tegra2 powered devices
    • Video calling enabled by default on more devices
    • Revised user interface for message history
    • Improved support for Bluetooth headsets
    • New emoticons
    • Support for editing and deleting IM messages
    • Support for joining a call
    • Advertising for non-paying subscribers

    It's been a long time coming, but it's great to see it available for these devices, and the new enhancements look useful. What do you guys think?

    Our patience is paying off

    It is nice to see Skype's support for the Acer Iconia A500. I just now received the update, and will test it out very soon. The biggest plus is going to be the video support, which I have been waiting for patiently.

    video works, but...........
    I tried using a bluetooth headset and found out the the A500 and A100 do not support bluetooth microphone (handsfree) only stereo audio (how stupid). Apparently the headphone jack does not allow a mic either. So the audio is really bad.

    I downloaded the Skype update and enabled video in settings. However, the video stops as soon as the other computer answers and the camera icon shows it switched to rear camera. When I try to switch back to front camera it quickly goes back to the rear but the screen stays blank regardless. No video on other user computer either. Was calling to wife's Windows 7 notebook. Have to exit Skype to get video back to try again. Even tried resetting via pinhole but no change. Anyone else with similar problem?
