    I'm looking for a video chat app that can connect with Facetime on a Ipod. Does skype do that?

    Thanks

    I don't believe this is possible.

    However, your iFriends can get Tango, and then you'll be able to video chat. I know Tango works on other Android phones (even my old Droid w/o a front facing camera), could someone with a Nexus confirm Tango's status on the Nexus/ICS????

    The built in Google Talk video chat works great too (chatting with another phone user, OR the other person using their computer). Not sure if the iFruit folks can utilize the Google Talk goodness though.

    Tango seems to be the most widely compatible app. With Google Talk, for example, I can't video chat with my wife on her DINC2. On her phone, Skype will only work with the front facing camera.

    Tango has worked everywhere.

    How do I get this to work in Google talk? I can get video chat working in google messenger but it doesn't work in google talk.

    My wife and I both have a Gnex. I'm thinking maybe a problem is that I had to use my Gmail account on her phone for market purposes but Im not sure. On my phone in Gtalk I light up green as in "online" on her phone both hers and my email wont light up. Not to mention the whole interface is very confusing. It's just a blank white screen. I choose myself, then send chat invite, it says invitation sent yet nothing ever comes up on her phone and shes always listed as offline. Also, where is the video option anyway? I see no way of initiating a vid chat here in the Gtalk interface. Only in Gmessenger. Help!
