Does Tango work on Android? If yes, can someone try it, to see if it works with the front facing camera?

Qik didnt work either they all use the rear camera. I know the ffc works because of the camera app. But none of the video chat apps seem to detect it

Talk doesn't do video on mobiles yet. Unless you've got the honeycomb version laying around.....

The way it works on the Nokia phones is to initiate the call from the GTalk PC client. The phone would then "answer" via video. Unfortunately dialing "from the phone" to another phone, or desktop client, does not work.

Press the menu button then hit video chat/call it'll let you know that you need the yahoo video ad-on. Even with that though, it only works with the back camera, not the front like others have stated.

I haven't tried Qik for Moto myself but it seems to be the only app thats working for the Atrix's FFC

Default front face web based chat

I have a Motorola AFRICA 4G with a fromy facing camera and it works well with tango and Skype and for taking videos and pictures of myself but I want to try using it for web based chat rooms like tinychat.com. Any suggestions for that folks?
