Adjust Skype calling options 6

Skype video calling optionsIf you have a webOS phone or TouchPad with a Skype account added to it, you can adjust the settings on how calls can be received and how video calls are handled. There are actually 4 settings that can be adjusted for the device:

  • Allow Skype Calls from anyone or just those people on your contact list
    • Note that if this selection is grayed out on your webOS phone, you may not be able to change this setting
  • Allow Skype video calls
  • Auto-accept video calls or prompt you to accept it
  • Show your Skype Contacts that video calling is enabled on your device

In order to adjust these setting, you just need to:

  1. Go into your Phone app (on phones) or the Phone & Video Calls app (on the TouchPad)
  2. Swipe-down from the top left to bring down the Phone Application drop-down menu and choose Preferences & Accounts
  3. Find the ACCOUNTS section and tap on your Skype account
  4. Adjust the settings as necessary
  5. Swipe back (on phones) or press the "Done" button (on TouchPad) to return to the phone settings

thanks for sharing. Not many ppl are aware that the Skype audio settings is under the Account section.

how do you get Skype on Pre2. I have it on my TP.

it may be carrier dependant.. try going to http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?packageid=com.palm.app.skype on your phone and see if you can install the app.

Skype's built into webOS 2.2.4 on Pre2 - but it's not a separate app, just another account in phone or sms.

I was thinking video calls DUH! No front facing camera.

the link doesn't work from veer 4 G ((
