    Skype Videochat working

    Hey guys, been lurking for a while. First post.

    Thought it was worth mentioning I updated Skype today and beyond fixing a log-in bug (which was driving me nuts) they incorporated video chat support.
    First thing I got was a message saying even though skype was not "optimized" for my tablet, I could now use videochat.

    Made a couple of test calls, and though short, video seemed to work very well. Camera gives you the option of On/Off (duh) but you can also toggle front or back camera.

    Overall I am very excited this is finally working, as skype app before this update was... rudimentary at best. Anyone else care to share their experience with this update?

    Thanks for the heads up!!

    I had to go in to app world and click on the app since it wasn't showing an upgrade (not sure about the new app world with updates now). Anyway clicked on skype, clicked the update. Got the same...not configured for your device. Enabled it and sah-weet. We have video chat back with skype again. Nice to have an option if you're trying to talk to someone who isn't on gchat.
    Thanks!

    Can you host a conference call with more than one caller? I normally do from my PC but I seem to have trouble locating that option with my new xoom.

    thanks,
    Duke
