…When you're on the receiving end of a Skype call, answering it is easy.…When someone's calling you, you'll see a popup…over whatever you're working on and hear Skype ring.…Since Skype for Windows runs in the background in Windows 8.1, it's always on.…And, even if your computer is on the lock screen or in sleep mode, you'll hear…the ring and will be able to answer…the call without logging back in to your computer.…So here I am on the lock screen, and I'm expecting a call from Shea.…If she's just requesting an audio call I can answer by clicking on the phone…icon, it looks like she's requesting video but I'm just going to answer a voice call.…
Hi Shea.…>> Hi.…>> Remember, when answering a video call, if you're…not ready to broadcast your camera just yet, you can…just click on the phone icon and they'll hear you,…but will see a profile pic instead of your webcam.…And when you're ready to join them on video, you can…enable your camera during the call by clicking on your webcam icon.…Thanks, Shea, I'll talk to you again soon.…
