[FIX] Skype Not Working and Other Connection Issues

Skype Not Working? Is the Service Down or are You Having Connection Issues?

Skype allows the world to communicate. Millions of individuals and businesses use Skype to make video and voice calls, send messages and share files. It’s a great app, when it works, but when it’s wonky, your calls drop or video freezes and be it for pleasure or business – either is going to be an issue! First make sure Skype isn’t down.

There is an easy fix for Skype not working, disconnecting or freezing.  Keep reading and we will shed more light on the causes and how to fix this!

What Causes Skype Not Working Issues?

Before we go any further you should check these 7 Skype settings as suggested by Make Use Of. If those suggestions didn’t help, you should know that Skype video (and even audio) calls are extremely bandwidth-hungry. They demand a lot from your Internet connection to work properly. So, when determining why Skype isn’t working, you should 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. Your connection could be spotty and experiencing a lot of “packets loss.” Both of these issues are amplified when you are on the move. Since 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.

By default mobile devices are designed to only use one Internet connection at a time. Same goes for laptops and desktops – one connection at a time. Wouldn’t it be nice if you were able to use both Wi-Fi and mobile data for speed and reliability?

Improve Your Connection and Forget About Skype Not Working

Speedify is a secure no-log VPN for mobility service that changes the way your mobile device connects to the Internet. Instead of just using one connection, Speedify allows your mobile device to connect over both Wi-Fi and mobile data simultaneously. This instantly increases your connection bandwidth and reliability, and if Skype not working was caused by your connection – the issue is gone. With two connections at the same time, you will always have the best video quality on calls and won’t have to worry about calls dropping.

Speedify also monitors the quality of your Internet connections. When it detects that a signal is weak or that the network is too slow, it will automatically and seamlessly reroute the data through the other working connection. Best of all, when the other connection is back online and reliable, it begins using it again – automatically and in the background. No more Skype not working issues!
