    Default Skype on Tab3

    So does video calling not work on the Tab 3? I don't have the option to make a video call, so I'm assuming the worst.

    Google Hangouts is the only one I have been able to get working with video.

    Thanks... not sure why. But definitely a bummer.

    When you say Tab 3.....which tablet are you talking about 7.0, 8.0 or 10.1? They are not the same, I have the option for Skype video calls on my Tab 3 8.0......so I do not understand what you mean by saying the Tab 3 doesn't give you the option for video calls !

    Also are you using the latest version of Skype 3.2.0.6673

    I'm referring to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. And there's no option to make or receive video calls in Skype on this tablet unfortunately.

    Someone has to send you a video message before you can receive one. As long as youre signed in to Skype, you can receive Skype video calls on your Android device.

    Not on the Tab 3. According to Skype, the tablet does not meet the minimum hardware requirements to do video calls. Just video messaging.

    What's is the differnce between video messaging and video calling?

    Never mind, I fugured it out. You are right, Skype video calling does not wirk on the Tab 3. Guess I'll be removing the App, because video calling is all I've used it for in the past

    Tried the latest update on my Tab 3 8.0 but the video calls fail about 10 secs after I try to connect to a contact. Did you do anything special when installing the new version? What am I missing?

    I really didn't do anything special. Once Google Play pushed the update through (I'm running at Tab3 10.1), I made a test call and it worked pretty flawlessly. Of course, I'm discounting the crappy video quality that's inherent in any Skype video call... but otherwise it worked fine.

    I can't get the video calling to work on my SG Tab 3 8.0. I've tried unistalling, reinstalling and nothing works. There is no option in the Settings menu for me to enable it. The versin of Skype that's
    installed is 4.4.0.31835. If this is the problem I have no idea how to get any other version than this. My camera is working in front facing mode without Skype.... any offers of help?

    Could you please confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 SM-T310 actually has a built in mic to make skype calls with or do you actually use headphones with a mic on it? Thankyou

    I have used skype 3 times now on my tab 3.8.0 T310 without updating anything. It has been so successful that my sister has just bought the same model to skype her son in Canada. The problem I had was trying to end the skype call as normal methods left a tiny skype screen in the top right and the voice still connected. Did manage it eventually. The problem some people are having may be due to software issues.
    Edit: I have only had my device for 3 months so most updates were probably in place.

    I have had my Tab 3 10.1 since Christmas and Skype has worked perfectly. I use it on a regular basis and enjoy it!
