Does anyone know about Skype

Hi all, I have never used Skype before and was only give a 3 minute lesson by my daughter before she went on holiday. If she calls me I can see and hear her but she can't see me just hear. If I call her it seems to work OK. I am told to turn on the camera but there is no option to do this, not on the screen anyway.

I am using an Android tablet, am I missing something in the settings perhaps.

Tap "Video Call", or the camera icon.

On my screen there is an icon to turn video on or off. Best described as a hot water bottle on it's side, with a red line through it. Tap on this and video should work.

Thanks, If I call her then fine, I realise about the camera icon. If she calls me and I answer there is no camera icon on my screen nor can she see me or is this something her end?

Which tablet?

It is called an Ainol Novo10 Hero. As I say it works OK if I call her.

I haven't used Skype on Android for some time. Will have to try to remember.

Does this Android video help?
