How To: Improve Skype Quality for Remote Work

Skype is a Work From Home Essential

Working from home is a challenge. Some of us may have issues with staying organized, managing our time, maintaining focus, collaborating, and most of all, communicating.

One of the most helpful tool you can use on a work from home setup is Skype. It can allow you to chat with your colleagues, do a video call, do a remote control session, share files, do online presentations, and many more!

We know that not all of us have the best Internet connection. When working from home, your Internet connection can either make or break your career. You don't want to miss an important Skype meeting or cannot send your report files because of Internet-related problems. With this article, let us show you how you can improve your Skype connection while working remotely.

What Causes Skype Related Problems?

Skype video and audio calls as well as screen-sharing are extremely bandwidth-hungry. They demand a lot from your Internet connection to work properly. So, when determining why Skype has issues, you should first look at your Internet connection. Maybe your Internet connection is too slow and doesn’t have enough bandwidth for an HD VoIP call. Or the connection is spotty and you’re experiencing a lot of “packets loss.” Both issues are amplified when you are in a remote area where Internet signal is bad. Since computers and smartphones can’t easily transition between different Wi-Fi networks or cell towers without interrupting apps, Skype calls disconnect.

Whatever the case, by default both computers and smartphones are designed to only use one Internet connection at a time. They are often connected to more than one Internet source – Wi-Fi, wired Ethernet, mobile data – but they don’t use all simultaneously. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could be able to do that, for speed and reliability?

How to Fix Common Problems with Skype

The common reason your Skype sessions are failing is usually not because of the app itself. Regardless, Microsoft has a common issues page which you should differently check out. That said, it is almost always an Internet connection issue. Your device only uses one internet connection at a time. Streaming video and video chat uses up a lot of bandwidth. If there are any issues with the one connection your device is utilizing, you will experience lag. Skype can’t send and receive data fast enough to keep up with the demands you are placing on it.

Speedify optimizes the way your device transmits data.

When you download and install Speedify, it allows your device to use all available connections at the same time. This makes Skype run smoother and faster. Instead of dealing with lag or connection issues, you can just talk. No failing Skype calls.

Speedify also monitors your signal strength while you Skype. If one of your connections gets too weak, or drops out altogether, the app uses its auto failover feature. The app automatically routes all the data back through your remaining internet connection. This means that if your Wi-Fi signal is spotty or if you are moving out of range, you can still have fast and seamless Skype calls.

Because Speedify is running in the background, you don’t have to worry about a conversation ending prematurely because of a signal dead spot. You can finally enjoy a Skype that lives up to its promises.

Most importantly, Speedify does not only make Skype calls better. Speedify can also improve your overall internet speed and performance. This is vital when working from home.

Speedify Ensures Your Skype Connection Works at Best

You don’t have to worry about someone else eavesdropping on your Skype call or intercepting your data.
