How to Fix Performance Issues of Skype

Is your Skype acting funny? Or Skype is performing like a snail? Well! if this is the case with you then consider yourself lucky as this tiny blog will help you to fix the slow performance of Skype.

  • You must use the latest version of Skype.
  • You shall not use application & programs which need high-bandwidth during the Skype session is going on.
  • You must update the operating system of your system regularly.
  • Avoid downloading heavy files during the Skype session.
  • During a Skype audio/video call session, file sharing will be slow as Skype gives the first preference to the calls as compared to the file-sharing.

Lisa is a gadget freak and has been working in a PR firm in NY city. She has a 10Mbps internet line in her home but since the last few days, she is unable to make a proper video call. The system she has been using is brand new and has no hardware issue. She couldn’t find the exact reason why Skype is taking revenge.  After diagnose, she found that the firewall is the reason for the pain in the neck.  She immediately disabled the firewall and Skype started working like a charm.

You must ensure the speed of your network connection. Not only the download speed but also the upload speed is required for the smooth performance of Skype.

Call Type:                                       Recommended Download Speed               

Voice Calling:                                              100 kbps

Video Calling/Screen Sharing:                   300 kbps

Video Calling (High-quality):                    500 kbps

Video Calling (High Definition):                1.5 Mbps

Before you start a real Skype session, go to the “Echo/Sound Test Service” and make a test call. Attentively, press the “Call Quality Information” button. Click on the Computer followed by the connection tab. You must see the message “Your computer speed is fast” Your computer is fast enough to make audio calls and high-quality video calls and “The connection speed between you is fast.  The internet connection between you is fast enough for high-quality audio/video calls” respectively.

Caution: If you use Skype on your LED or 4K television then you must have a stable internet connection with the download/upload speed of more than 5 Mbps. In some of the 4K televisions, you may require a more high-speed connection.

If the problem still persists then, don’t lose the bottle. Call our tech experts of Skype customer care support service on the toll-free number for instant resolution.
