    Front facing camera not working for video chat on Revolution

    bulldog69

      How come the front facing camera doesn't work on Tango? I wanted a new phone with FFC to use on Tango and for when Skype goes video on phones and it seems it don't work on Tango. Is it just Revolution or is it the same on all phones? I don't need a FFC phone to take pics of myself I have had no problem doing that on other phones, would love the feature to do what it is supposed too.

          Hi bulldog69!

           

          To answer your question, some of those video chat applications have additional 'plug-ins' that need to be downloaded from the Market as well. Just search for "tango" in the Market and see if anything pulls up. If this is not the case, try to uninstall and re-install the application from the Market.  I recommend trying another video chat app to see if that works as well. If you can take photos and video with the FFC, there's no issue with the device.

           

          Hope that helps! Keep us posted.

           

          Thank you!

                Why is this issue being called solved as it is not and front facing camera only works for taking pictures of yourself?

                  Tango as of yesterday (Monday) is updated to work on Revolution now, a guy from Tango said it was fixed so I downloaded Tango back on phone and now need to test it
