I have read that Fring supports doing Skype calls. I have installed Fring it but see no Skype options.

How do I do Skype calls using Fring?


Skype has blocked Fring from using it's services. For more info see http://www.fring.com/blog/?p=2322


So, even though Fring supports Skype calls, Skype won't have any of it. Skype blocks calls from Fring now, so the mobile app no longer includes that functionality. However, there is a Skype for Android app...

Update: And, now the Skype app is available for everyone except those in China and Japan.

    Unfortunately those calls (skype out) still use your cell minutes.

  • Verizon wireless only, I live in New Zealand, actually it turns out that most of the world doesn't live in the states.

  • Sorry, I guess? Actually, it turns out you didn't say where you were...
