    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.

    I tried to use QIK but camera to use for recording option is disabled and back camera is default selection. Any change required to use front camera?

    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
