This article offers practical tips for improving your network speed during your live discussions.
Some tips to improve your network speed for video chat:
- Close other applications and tabs: Having multiple applications and tabs open can slow down your device and reduce the available bandwidth for your video chat.
- Use a wired connection: If possible, connect your device to the internet via an Ethernet cable. This can provide a more stable and faster connection compared to Wi-Fi.
- Limit background activity: If possible, avoid downloading large files, streaming videos, or performing other bandwidth-intensive activities while on a video chat.
- Restart your router: Sometimes restarting your router can help to improve network speed and connectivity.
- Reduce video quality: Consider lowering the video quality of your video chat, as higher quality requires more bandwidth.
- Run a pre-call test with our video API.
Having good network speed is only one aspect of a successful video chat. Other factors such as lighting, camera positioning, and audio quality can also impact the overall experience.
