All you need is your Android phone and a suitable app. Your children want to chat with their grandparents over Skype.
Or perhaps it’s your boss, wanting a teleconference to discuss that report you submitted. Although they come built into many monitors and all-in-one PCs, not everyone has a webcam.
Whether you need the best laptop for Skype while you’re at home or the best Skype laptop while you’re moving between cities – I’m here to cover all the bases.
Staying connected with relatives, colleagues or clients is hard.
If you want to also use the phone as a microphone leave audio mode enabled.
You'll also want to make sure the app is set to prevent the phone going to sleep.
Simply being able to smile at someone can completely change the tone of a conversation. To get webcam microphone working I had to reboot, go to sound settings and select it in the input tab.Then start start a Skype test call and select the right input in the recording tab Video works with version 126.96.36.199.Microphone works too, though you may need to choose the Input device in System Preferences Sound.Microphone may suffer from "clicking sound" issue (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/ source/linux/ bug/151890 ) Worked perfectly out of the box for all but Skype.
