Microsoft Skype team is trying to make all sorts of improvements that will help improve video and audio calls in almost any situation. Today, Skype team blogged about some of the improvements they have made in the recent past. Since Skype is sheer number of call minutes each day, they come to know about the situations our users find themselves in, and based on that information, they can optimize our software for any of those situations.
“We know more For example, in the US, we know what a Skype call between two people with the same internet provider is like, or we can analyze this call between you in the US and me in Germany, and we can therefore use the data on bandwidth or the strength of the wireless link to optimize Skype, ensuring users are getting the absolute best audio and video.
Using this information, Skype team is updating and changing algorithms, and in the coming months we will be able to see significant improvements in call quality – improvements that will be ongoing.
We’ve been hard at work trying to make sure that you have the best quality call possible. Over the past nine months we’ve seen significant increases in the amount of HD calls sent by our users. We’re proud to say that we’ve had an increase of more than 900% in 720p+ calls on Windows Modern and an increase of over 500% on our Windows desktop client. And that’s a huge step forward in high definition video calling if you ask us.
