How to Stop Skype from Dropping on Windows 10
In the current Coronavirus outbreak, but also when working remotely, Skype allows the world to communicate. Millions of individuals and businesses use Skype to:
- make video and voice calls,
- send instant messages and
- share files with other people.
The software app is available on all major platforms, including Windows. It’s a great app, when it works. But when it’s wonky and your calls drop or the video stream freezes – it’s going to be an issue!
There is an easy enough fix for when Windows 10 Skype keeps disconnecting. Keep reading and we will shed more light on the causes and how to fix this.
Why Does My Skype Keep Disconnecting on Windows 10?
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 Windows 10 Skype keeps disconnecting, 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 Windows laptops 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 computers are designed to only use one Internet connection at a time. Even if you are connected to a wired connection and also a Wi-Fi network, for example, they don’t use both simultaneously. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could be able to use all available connections at once, for speed and reliability?
