Randall - You can on the 2012 models that have a camera and microphone. You can't on the 2013 models.

Randall, the current Kindle Fire HD does not have a camera or a microphone, so not on that one.

On the previous generation Kindle Fire HD, you could.

This one:

Kindle Fire HD 7", HD Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB - Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation - 3rd)

No, it has no camera and no microphone. If you have the older edition, the one from 2012, it does have the equipment and you can Skype on it.

There's so much confusion as to the models. Hold your Kindle Fire HD in "landscape mode" which would be as if you were going to watch a movie (the longer dimension going side to side in your hands). Look for a small circle (that's the camera) in the middle of the bezel (black part) that goes all the way around the screen. It will be dead center in the middle either on top or bottom of the screen depending on which way your holding it if you have one with a camera. Basically, if you have a Fire HD with a camera (that little circle), you can do Skype.

Some people get confused when they hear 2012 or 2013 model. There were two models 'available' for sale in 2013. The one that was already out which came out in 2012 and carried over into 2013 which HAD a camera and the new redesigned Fire HD model that was introduced in late 2013 at the same time as the HDX models. THAT model of FIRE HD does NOT have a camera and can NOT do Skype.

An easier way to tell is - if you have a Fire HD with buttons on the back, it doesn't have a camera.
