How to use Skype video chat From Blackberry Playbook Tablet for free

Finally after months of searching the internet I was finally able to make a call using Skype from my Blackberry Playbook for free. I am very disappointed with RIM for not introducing a Skype app in the app store as promised :(

You can use Skype by following this URL: www.imo.im
Once you reach the home page choose Skype.
Login using your Skype user name and password.
Thats it you're all set to chat with your loved ones.

Check the video instruction for a clear understanding of how it works. Enjoy chatting lol.

    1. I don't think you can call a mobile from this website. Actually I don't know about this. I couldn't find any option which said call mobile.

    1. I was concerned in the beginning, but it's the same as using IM or any other similar app. I've tried Imo myself and haven't faced any problems till now.

    1. Ask your friend to sign in to Skype using Imo.Im, when both you and the person you wanna chat with login to Skype via Imo the video chat option works.

  12. Online Chat Software is a powerful tool that helps you talk to your website visitors and convert them into customers.According to a survey 23 percent of the e-commerce sites surveyed said that of those customers that engaged with them in a live chat, more than 40 percent converted to an active lead or sale.

  15. Dears,
    I have checked the website witch you mentioned and the skype icon is not available anymore.
    And also i have downloaded an app called oovoo and none of the voice call or the video call is working ..
    I regret the moment i bought this BB playbook device , it's the worst tech i have ever seen in my whole life .. It's a really waste of money ..

    I really don't know what's the point of the front camera if u can't use it ..

    Even the BB world , it's the worst app store i have ever seen in my whole life ..what the hell is this !!!!!

    Who ever want to buy this device , do NOT buy it .. It a waste of money

    1. Skype used to be there, but they have removed it now. Yes BB pb is a dead tablet now, can't expect anything good to happen with it.

  16. ATTENTION before denigrate the quality of this product. This is probably the best price / quality ratio in the market. HOWEVER, even I am a fan of Blackberry, I must admit that the NONE Android compatibility is a death sentence for the tablet.

    Indeed, despite the build quality that is above the average, the lack of applications is totally unacceptable. Really, the impossibility of video chatting with NONE Blackberry users is incomprehensible madness ... I am extremely disappointed.
