Skype Mobile and GSM calling RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    We are looking at deploying the Skype Mobile app for BYOD, protected by Intune MAM policies.

    My understand is that the voice calls will use a data connection.Hence, unless a user is on Wi-Fi, the voice call will eat into their monthly data allowance. 

    What do we need to do for Skype Mobile to utilise GSM?

  • Hi Alex,

    You can set the parameter -Voicesettings to cellular to use only GSM, if you want.

  • Hi Alex,

    Agree with Holger,

    Based on your demands, you could set the voiceSetting to the Cellular. there are no any additional infra needed.

    When you set the voiceSetting to the Cellular  and make or receive a SFB call, SFB will call you back at the mobile number you specified. Video will not be available in this scenario. When you make a SFB call, this method will use Wi-Fi data (or cellular data, if Wi-Fi is not available) to establish the connection to the SFB Servers, then will use your mobile voice plan minutes for the duration of the call.

  • What I'd like to have is a configuration where the Skype client will use data if there is Wi-Fi but GSM if not? Is that possible?

    Secondly, to utilise GSM, is there any additional infra needed?
