Although Skype allows you to connect with video to communicate and collaborate, you are not required to use video. Learn how you may decide to use only audio in which you can talk with the other person while still sharing files, images, and your screen in this video.
- [Oliver] There may be times when you…want to communicate with someone using a Skype call…but you don't want to use the video feature.…Perhaps one of the people don't have a webcam…or maybe you are having a bad hair day.…Another important reason is that video can take up…a lot of bandwidth, and if you're experiencing choppy video…or having issues with a Skype video call,…you may want to try doing the call without video.…This can still be beneficial.…It allows you to communicate with someone…using a wide variety of different devices…and you can still do this over the internet…and you have the ability to share your screen.…
You can chat, send links, and more.…Let's take a look at how to do this.…I'm going to go ahead and call my friend Toby again.…However, this time I'm going to make an audio call…instead of the video call.…So I'll go here to my Contacts and I'm going to select Toby.…And then, up at the top right,…instead of clicking on the video icon,…I'm going to click on the phone icon,…which will make an audio call.…
