Hi Skype Support Network,
When I make video calls and phone calls with Skype there is a crackling/static noise on the line, which is very annoying/distracting.
Anybody else experiencing a similar issue with the sound of Skype?
Any idea what might cause this crackling/static noise and what might be done about it?
Phone specs: Samsung Galaxy Nexus (JOP40C) with stock Android 4.2 & WiFi (home/office network) & Net10/ATT, Skype v184.108.40.20681
I'm having the same problem and I see no one has answered you yet. Sometimes it sounds like water or a little mouse nawing too. Is this the same for you?
Seems to be a problem with recent version of Skype. I fixed via the following.
I have basically the same problem but it quiets down everytime someone talks or makes a noise besides myself, It starts getting lowder and lowder when they do not talk but this static noise is very obnoxious.
My friend has this problem too with his Droid. He discovered that if he initiates the call, he doesn't get the static. If he is called or added to a call, then the static comes back. So try being the one who starts the call. Hope it helps!
I have the same problem and is really very annoying. I even downloaded Skype to my ipad and it does the same thing. It can go for 30 - 40 seconds and then the static hits in for a minute or so and then clear again and then the static again.We have had a lot of rain recently and was wondering if water could be the problem. Can anyone help ???
