Anyone use Skype?

Recommended Posts

Never used Skype before but i have had to instal it over the last week as i will need it for some online chats soon, instal has gone well but for some reason my mic seem to be failing.

I have tried to skype someone on an ipad but he is no techno geek and im unsure if the problem is his end or mine, so does anyone fancy PM me their skype address so i can try and hit you up over the next few days and see if you can hear me?

 

Also anything you think i should check before i go online?

Stopped using Skype years ago "was getting spammed" even have it on my TV pull up camera "top back of TV"

 

Your a lot better off using whatsapp as a lot of people will already have it on phones and tablets

you can use it on PC the is even a webpage but it's in beta

My mrs uses Skype everyday to speak with her parents in Poland. I use FaceTime or Zoom but there is also WhatsApp as Cobra has suggested above

whatsapp has a browser plug-in so will work on any PC that has a web-browser and it will do video calls but it is in beta

 

I've got over 10 hours using it and only ever had one dropout.

 

Or even better yet if you use gmail go here https://duo.google.com/
