Skype Low Bandwidth : Slow Connection Mobile Version

Almost all of us use a mobile phone. And it is mostly used to connect with your friends. Chatting and voice calls is something which almost all of us do. People are now using internet on their mobile phones and what they like is to make video calls on mobiles. Skype is the most popular video calling voip app. 

Internet text messaging or chatting requires very less of bandwidth, voice calls also do not require too high bandwidth. However when we talk about video calling, it is definitely something which requires bandwidth, otherwise the call quality will be poor.

The same is the case with Skype. Video calls using Skype also requires significant bandwidth (or high speed internet). In India most people don't use 3G on their smartphones (because of the high charges) and wifi is always limited access. So if you are having slow internet connection on mobile (say GPRS) and if you use Skype, you will experience bad call quality.

Skype received many such complaints and good thing is they have taken action on this. Skype has announced a low-bandwidth version of its service, specially for slow speed internet connection on mobile. This low bandwidth Skype solution will be more favorable where 3G ain't available or is costly.

The software will minimize data usage and maximize battery life, according to Skype.
