Use all of your Internet connections at once
Why the Android Skype App Disconnects
Skype video (and even audio) calls are extremely bandwidth-hungry and demand a lot from your Internet connection to work properly. So, when determining why Skype is disconnecting on Android, you should first look at your Internet connection. It might be that your Internet connection is too slow and doesn’t have enough bandwidth for a VoIP HD video call. Or the connection is flaky and you’re experiencing a lot of “packets loss.” Both of these issues are amplified when you are on the move, since Android mobile devices can not easily transition between different Wi-Fi networks or cell towers without interrupting apps and dropping Internet VoIP calls, such as the ones on Skype.
Whatever the case, by default mobile devices are designed to only use one Internet connection at a time. They are often connected to both Wi-Fi and mobile data, but they don’t use both simultaneously. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could be able to use both Wi-Fi and mobile data at once, for speed and reliability?
Speedify Solves Skype Disconnecting on Android Issues Once and for All
Speedify is a fast bonding VPN that changes the way your Android smartphone connects to the Internet. Instead of just using one connection, Speedify allows your Android phone to connect to the Internet over both Wi-Fi and mobile data simultaneously. This instantly increases your connection bandwidth and reliability and provides a better and “disconnect-free” Skype experience. You will always have the best video quality on calls and don’t ever drop any calls.
Speedify also monitors the quality of your Internet connections. When it detects that you’re on a bad Wi-Fi network, it will automatically and seamlessly reroute the data through cellular data. Best of all, when the Wi-Fi is back online and reliable, it begins using it again – automatically and in the background. Say goodbye to Skype disconnecting on Android!
