Remarkable features of Skype

Check Internet Speed

The Internet connection speed plays a very important role while using Skype, especially if you want to make HD video calls or call several friends at the same time. To find out if the speed of your Internet connection allows you to use all the features of Skype, just click Check Internet Speed on the button below and wait until the testing is complete. As a result you will find out if the speed of your Internet connection is high enough for Skype. Also, in the table below you will see which types of calls are supported. If you are looking for more options and better accuracy, visit My Internet Speed (a free online test to check your internet speed).

ATTENTION! Before starting this test, make sure to pause any active downloads. Otherwise, the test results may be inaccurate.

Type of call Supported
Audio calls ?
Video calls ?
Screen sharing ?

Group video calls

The results of this test are relative and may be inaccurate. Therefore, despite the fact that this test is intended to check the speed of your Internet connection and find out if you can use all the features of Skype, I recommend checking manually the quality of the connection if you suspect that the results are incorrect.

    I know Windows 7 closes for updates mid January 1202, I have a small 13" Windows 10 but I do NOT like that system, I will however install SKYPE on that laptop so I can contact my family in South Africa. Port Elizabeth. Kind Regards. Derek Jones
