Skype apk is an android version that can play on almost popular android platform for tablet or mobile phone. Kindle Fire customized android operation system can install and play Skype apk smoothly, but because of lacking microphone, camera, skype on your kindle fire just can implement text based conversation, not video, audio conversion.
You could still use the text and receive video portions.
There is already proof that a headset with a microphone attachment can work on the kindle fire depending on the headset and app, so all that is necessary is a skype program written specifically for the kindle fire
Video chat requires two things that the Kindle Fire does not have at all:
And one thing that makes video chat incredibly useful:
Data connection from any location. (Kindle Fire only has WiFi, no 3G or GPS)
Some kindle fire forums recently annouced that they can use a headphone as a microphone, but this is one way conversation and there are problems in audio transfer. We are looking for the next Kindle Fire 2 released with a microphone, webcam to use full skype features.
