A few days ago, Skype 2.0 for Android was released. Other than some neat updates such as a new user interface, 2.0 supports video calls over Wifi and 3G. So, anyone with a front facing camera can enjoy making free video calls over their android mobiles, right? Unfortunately, not quite! The app only supports the:
HTC Desire S
Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo
Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro
That leaves out many capable Android mobiles, how frustrating is that? Luckily, Pulser over at XDA Developers felt the same way and released a hacked version of Skype 2.0. His version of the app supports nearly every capable Android device. There have been mixed results but a huge amount of people have found the app works wonders.
If your Android mobile has a front-facing camera and isn’t one of those supported devices, download the hacked app here and give it a go.
