How to fix slow Skype calls and solve lag and performance issues

Are your Skype calls really slow and unresponsive?

Skype video chat can be one of the most useful tools for business and one of the best ways to stay in touch with friends and families. But, too often, slow Skype video chat turns what should be a useful tool into an aggravating experience.

The worst part is when the problems start without warning. You will be having a great chat when you notice that the other person’s mouth isn’t moving or their face doesn’t match the words you are hearing. Then, suddenly everything freezes or the video starts to get blocky and pixelated. It becomes almost impossible to carry on a conversation.

It used to be you would just have to wait for your wifi signal to get better or to hope your cell signal improved.

Do you have a Fast Connection, But Skype is still Slow?

Skype Can’t Connect? Over 95% of slow Skype video chat issues have to do with signal strength. Your device is unable to upload or download the data for the video chat quickly enough. This can happen because you are moving and you enter a space where the wifi signal is not as strong, or the wifi signal fluctuates, or your device is trying to switch over from a cell signal to wifi or from wifi to cell signal. All of these problems leave you with a slow Skype video chat connection. You can experience everything from a slight lag, to buffering issues, to a complete loss of connection.

Do you often find yourself not being able to use Skype? Read below to see a quick and easy fix!

How Speedify Works to Fix Slow Skype Performance and Improve the Quality of Your Connection

Speedify works in the background of your phone. It monitors the quality and strength of both your Wi-Fi signal and mobile data signal. Instead of just making use of one or the other (which is your device’s default setting) it uses both connections simultaneously. This means you get a faster and more reliable Skype video chat. It also increases the speed at which you are able to transmit and receive data.

Plus, Speedify does more than just utilize both wifi and cell signal for data transmission. It also uses automatic failover. This means if one of your Internet connections fails or you accidentally step out of range, Speedify automatically reroutes everything to go through the remaining signal so that you stay connected with your Skype video chat without missing a beat.
