Anyone knows where or how te establish video-calls on N9? With the PR1.2 update it should be possible but untill now i haven't found any option to make video-calls, the Skype-app doesn't help either.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It's unfortunate, I've been disappointed to see no video call choice as the update notification came with video call support note.
Anyone to solve this problem or is that an official "faux"?..
With my old N900 I could only make skype video calls to devices that had skype video themselves. Since my wife's computer didn't have a camera - I got no video option while skyping her.My mother's computer had a camera - making a video calls to her was possible. Maybe it's the same with N9?

I agree 100% with wdexplorer. They announced it in the changelog, so where the S IT THEN? Its really a shame, and I hope the developing team will read this.
3g videocall is a feature almost mandatory in a phone with front camera and 3G certified connection.
And let's say its just "support" for 3rd party developers. So WHY would you post it in A CONSUMER DEVICE UPDATE?? This IS NOT the Nokia N950, wich is a dev device!! Is USELESS to a regular consumer this kind of announce.
Check the attached pic, it's really a shame.
Moderators notes: Profanity removed.
it clearly states 'supports video calling'
As noted above, the video call feature for N9 PR1.2 should now be available via the "Gtalk Video Call" application that can be downloaded from Nokia Store.
After the installation, activate the Gtalk account in Accounts > Google > Google Talk, if not already active. Then go to phonebook and select a contact with Gtalk account. Only those contacts that have the capability for video call will show the option for video calling. You can initiate the call straight from there.
i installed the application after which the phone rebooted. However there is a message that states that " there was a problem launching this item". I have already upgraded my firmware to PR1.2. and reinstalled this application twice. Please help.
Installed the app and got video call option, phone restarted without any notification, a small pop-up information would have been nice there, nevertheless it works.Posted a small screenshot how it actually looks on twitter
What about video calling via Operator 3G? was expecting that when I updated mine to PR1.2, honestly, hope that update is in pipeline. Skype video calling is a bonus if it ever comes.
Overall very satisfied with PR1.2, nice additons. Well done! N9 team.
