We use Skype to communicate with others like friends, family. There are two methods to communicate in Skype. One is a text message and another one is voice/video call. In case of voice or video call, you can talk with other person using your voice. But, they can only hear the voice you say. They aren’t able to hair the sound that your computer generates. In general, you have to take your microphone in front of your computer speaker to share the music. No more from today. Here we will discuss all solutions to share audio troughs Skype.
