- Make sure to have a stable and fast internet connection (Wi-Fi or wired.)
- If you are accessing Skype through Laptop (which is working on power-saving mode), switch back to maximum performance mode or plug the laptop to AC power.
- Test your Microphone, speakers and webcam by making a test call in Skype. It is suggested to perform this before every business call to save time and embarrassment.
