How do I check Lync call/video quality?


Having problems with call or video quality when using Lync? It’s easy to find out if it’s a connection issue between clients or if it's Lync’s servers that are causing the issue. Lync has voice and video quality indicators that show how well your computer is transmitting data in real-time. Depending on the version of Lync you have installed, call/video quality indicators will look like the following examples:


Lync 2010

Lync 2013


If you’re using Office 365 Lync Online, then the Office 365 Lync Online transport Reliability IP Probe tool will help you diagnose the issue. Use the server with the closest proximity to your location, and click Start Test.
