    The new UI looks great, it’s just a shame that video calling on the Xoom hasn’t been fixed. It use to work way back in 2.5. But each update since it no longer works.

    Routing voice to bluetooth (Motorola h730) is not working.
    Also sign in as invisible also not working.

    Well I like the new look but there are two major issues one of them existed in older versions
    1- Voice being automatically directed to the loudspeaker when a contact answers (the old unmixed issue)
    2- Caller ID resetting everytime I make a call to a mobile or a landline. How do I know? when calling a contact on his landline if he doesn’t accept anonymous calls his phone doesn’t even ring.and I have to go to skype.com and activate my caller id service all over again every single time!

    Dear all,
    I’ve a tablet Mediacom 810 updated with Android 4. Recently I’d installed Skype 2.7. I can log in Skype and chat, when I try to call or video call the system drop. I’ve tried to use the test device but I’m only able to hear the “Hello…” and then the system drops again. Can somebody help to solve this issue. I like skype and is really useful for me. Thanks
