    I'm wondering if anyone has found an app that lets you make video calls using the front-facing camera on the Streak that work with Android 2.2. Apparently fring used to work when 1.6 was on the Streak but doesn't any more.

    Anyone?

    Have u tried tango? I use that to connect my evo to my wifes iphone 4. Its probably the bestvid call app right now and the dev was really when I had issues with it. Not sure if it'll work on the streak, but I hope it does because I'm probably gonna pick up the streak when I switch back to att.

    I don't believe Skype has integrated video calling into their Android app just yet.

    Yes, I tried Tango. It works for the rear-facing camera on the Streak, just not the front-facing camera. I believe they are eventually going to make it work with the Streak, but it doesn't yet.

    I'll give it a try. Thanks.

    By gMail/gTalk, answer is simply, -> NO application is XMPP Voice & Video compatible.

    gTALK use XMPP protocol. Voice&Video over gTalk => (XMPP-Jingle).

    You pay 500USD for a tablet that cant MAKE A SIMPLE CHAT VOICE CALL.

    Who use XMPP?
    gMail/gTalk, Facebook, Ovi Nokia, Jabber, NEC, and many many many companies.

    To be sincerious, my Nokia n95 with Talkonaut (xmpp compatible client), I can make VOICE & VIDEO CALL. With a mobile of pennies instead of 500USD.

    That's a SHAME.

    SHAME ON YOU GOOGLE.

    We are still waiting an XMPP Client with Voice & Video.

    Tango does work on the Streak. My girlfriend both have streaks and we use it all the time. just press the camera button in the top corner and it will flip it around. the button can be hard to see but its there
