You'll have to ask skype, not Nokia. Skype make their own app for Nokia's symbian  phones so it's up to them to make it.

Fring.com used to allow skype video chat on Nokia phones until skype decided to block it.

 

So it's skype's decision.

Re: Nokia N8 Video Chat using Skype

Frin is not the alternative: -since they have launched video Skype for iPhone , they have a dispute with Skype, so the service has been compromised. -not everybody likes to send his Skype password details to a 3rd ( Israelian ) company

Re: Nokia N8 Video Chat using Skype

No need to make your search to complicated. Just go to the fring website and check for supported networks. Since iPhone 4 Fring lounge debacle: no more skype in Fring. So please Nokia, don't take the candy away from us: after Nokia N900 spoil we want integrated native Skype in EVERY Symbian phone as well. Put the preasure on Skype people.

It is Nokia's decision as well! (to not include skype preloaded / integrated)

 

Have you forgotten about the so called partnership between Skype and Nokia?

 

"Collaborating closely with Nokia to [b]preload and integrate[/b] our software onto their devices will benefit... etc.."

Full statement here (until removed)
http://about.skype.com/2009/02/skype_and_nokia_partner_to_int.html

They (Skype) talk about integration.  The only fruit of this is the N900 , so far.

 

2 steps back for the N8.

Re: Nokia N8 Video Chat using Skype

I'm sure Skype for S^3 will be available very soon. Be patient. Android got Skype only week ago. Nothing is instant.

Re: Nokia N8 Video Chat using Skype

It is not so much about patience.

Thing is, there is a big difference between a well integrated voip / video chat protocol and a seperate generic app.

Gotta know the N900 to visualize what I am talking about.

It seems Nokia - Skype partnership (integration - preloaded)  lost this momentum with the N8.

Re: Nokia N8 Video Chat using Skype

Have you used fring? looks like a 3rd grader made it, and operates much like spyware. its terrible. I see people been saying just wait, patience blah blah, that was dec 2010, a full year ago. this n8 is almost obsolete the way the trends are going. i have a feeling skype dumped all efforts for providing video on s3. but that is thier right, they are a 3rd party.

actually for nokia this is pathetic,i have long been a nokia supporter, they always market good product but the full potential of those products are seen a year or more after launch through fw updates. its nonsense, even my n95 had front camera, so does my n8. yet no decent app to run it online. we have video call thru 3g here in canada but its expensive.

apple comes with a front camera and bundled it with facetime in the SAME stroke, no hesitation, no sitting around waiting when i can realize my devices full capability. really nokia for a multi billion dollar organization, listen to your customers, this has been going on for a while. atleast make the current fanbase happy ie n8 users, or we will refuse to buy n9 (which does not have a native video call app either) and forget about lumia, no ffc altogether. but, which better than paying for the feature and not being able to use.

if i could i would make an app myself, but its your responsibility, your product, and your fw. i see nokia is tying many aspects to facebook these days, well facebook chat on pc has webcam support, here's a tip: work with that!

Re: Nokia N8 Video Chat using Skype

well as they are in bed with microsoft now,

 

How about a functional video chat enabled MSN messenger.

 

I agree Fring is complete **bleep** - 

 

tbh if you want PC to phone video calling -

don't get a Nokia as no symbian or microsoft programmes provide this,

yet several android ones do
