Skype test call – How do I test my sound is working in Skype (make an Echo test call)?

How to Test Your Camera for Skype

You’ll need to invest in good communication facilities in your small business if you want it to succeed. Good communication is what a business depends on to build its relationships with its employees, clients and the rest of the community at large. It is especially important to have good communication facilities for keeping things warm with long distance clients and business partners. You will probably want to hold regular meetings with them, despite their great distance, and video calls might make the most sense. After all, voice calls don’t have the appeal of being able to speak face-to-face with someone who is miles away, and the charges for long distance voice calls do add up over time.

Communicating Around the World

Luckily, we live in the 21st century, and Skype coupled with a Skype camera makes it possible to communicate with people over long distances with your regular internet plan. So long as both you and the person you’re trying to chat with use Skype, communication will be pretty simple. You can communicate with the other party for absolutely free. All you need is a webcam and your conversations will feel as real as if you were together in the same room.

Skype Camera Test

So how exactly do you do it? Sure, you can download Skype and install it on your computer, but how do you set up the camera and configure it for use in video calls? Don’t worry; as daunting as it sounds, it’s actually a pretty simple process that you can do in a few minutes. Skype allows you to perform a simple camera test to ensure everything is in working order. That’s what we’ll be going through today. Here’s how to test your camera for Skype.

Skype Video Help

Skype’s software already has the capability to verify that your camera is well connected and ready for a video call. It will also give you options once your camera is connected to enhance things such as the contrast and the brightness of images. Once you have tested your camera, you can communicate easily with other people who also have Skype.

Start by going to the “Tools” button on your Skype menu and clicking on it. Under “Tools,” click on “Options.”

Once on the “Options” menu, head to the “General” tab and click on “Video Settings.” If your camera is connected, you will see a picture of whatever is in the field of view of the camera in the webcam section. If you have multiple cameras connected, you can select a specific one on the drop-down menu under the webcam section. Make sure your camera is connected to your computer and switched on so that you can see the live picture. If that doesn’t work, then refer to the setup information in the user’s manual. Also, make sure you switch off any other programs that are using the webcam since only one program can use the webcam at a time.

When calling a contact, click the “Video Call” button under their name and a call bar will appear indicating that the phone is ringing. You’ll be able to see each other as soon as they answer the call.

Skype for Business Video Transcript

I’m going to show you how to make a test call to check your audio quality in Microsoft Skype for Business. This can be useful if you’re unsure about your call quality or need to make sure that your audio device is set up properly.

On any of these tabs in Skype for Business, click on the Audio Device Icon in the bottom left corner. Scroll down and choose Check Call Quality.  A window will open for the test call. Follow the audio prompts to complete the call and see how you sound.

Hang up when you are done. If you don’t like how you sound, then you can check your Audio Device Settings by clicking on the Audio Device Icon, and choosing Audio Device Settings. Here you can change the settings of your device, and also make more test calls until you find the audio quality you are satisfied with.

If you click OK, Skype for Business will automatically save your audio device settings.

That’s how you make a test call in Microsoft Skype for Business.
