    Why dont we get a video chat built into our phones ? I have the option to video chat but it never works with any of my friends when i try.

    I tried that and nothing. My friend I just tried with has a Galaxy S3 and when I got to his contact It shows the option to video chat but it never works ? He doesn't even have the option on the 3. It bugs me a little that we don't have something better then Facetime on Iphone. Android is better so we should have better lol. I know you can go threw google+ but it is a little hard to figure out for most. Skype sucks.

    Skype sucks? Skype works flawlessly on mine over every signal above EDGE and Wi Fi. I've used it from my SGS2 to PCs, Symbian phones, a Nokia N900 and to places like Korea, China and India from the UK and never had a problem.

    I have to say Face Time is not a patch on Skype or inbuilt video calling, but we Android users need a decent inbuilt video chat app.

    For me Skype always cuts in and out. It will work fine for a few min then will get sketchy. not saying facetime is the answer but I would think that Android would have offered a better video chat integrated into the phone. On my phone it looks as if they started but never finished :( and I really hate the fact that you have to make arrangements to make a skype call so you can turn it on and sign in.

    We have a Galaxy TAB 2 and are thinking of downloading Skype such that it can be used with WiFi in the USA calling our laptop on Skype in the UK. Will it work on this machine?
    Thanks
