- 3Find the Skype tile on the home screen. In this example, Skype is pinned to the home screen. The tile has a blue background with the white Skype logotype, which is a white circle with a blue letter "S" in the middle. If the tile has not been pinned to the home screen, then swipe left to find it in the application menu.
- 8Locate the video call icon. It is the leftmost icon at the bottom the screen, it is in the blue bar, and it has an outline of a video camera inside of a white circle. If the icon is pressed, the Skype application will attempt to communicate with the other Skype application on any device of the person to whom the call is made. Skype will open up the video camera, and the Skype application is going to try to access the camera of the contact. In the video, it is possible that the person will not reply owing to his or her being busy, but an attempt will be made anyway so that the tutorial demonstrates how to make video calls.
- 9Tap the camera icon. The frontal camera will be active. The application will call the contact, which can be seen by the image at the top of the screen. The image has a pulsating profile photo and the "calling..." line. It is going to try to call the person. In the video, the contact did not answer. However, the process to go through in order to make a free Skype-to-Skype video call has been shown.

My friend tried to make a video call to my no. in front of me, but video call option is not showing in my contact. Other contacts that exist in her contact list are showing video call Option. I am also unable to see the video call option in my Contacts of my phone. Only call button is present. We Both are Lumia 535 user. Please help, how can I start a video call?
Please try to perform the steps below.
- 1Open Skype.
- 2Delete your friend's number from Skype.
- 3Add your friend's Skype name (it should be a Skype name and not a telephone number).
- 4Ask your friend to read you, just in case, as a Skype name. He or she has to check if your name or number does not have a phone icon next to you. It should have a Skype icon.

I update 535 to Windows 10 after making video calls through Skype, its showing " camera already in use "but not working. I have tried: I used Line, Skype, Viber, etc.
- 1Launch your Skype application.
- 2At the bottom of the screen, select the More option and go to Settings.
- 3Sign Out. You will also want to sign out of your Outlook account or Live email account.
- 4Then go on your PC and Sign out of Skype.
When Skype was integrated into Windows 10, it caused a host of issues. For instance, I have to keep Skype signed out on my PC for my phone to be able to make video calls. I also have to sign out of my Outlook account before I make a video call. If you are still experiencing the Camera being used issue after these tips, install the app fresh again from the Windows Store.
