Hello and thank you for choosing

I think you need to change the settings WITHIN skype.

Skype doesnt know what sound out put you want to use, so you have to tell it.

To tell skype to use the SOUND BAR instead of whatever it is using now, you muct change the SOUND SETTINGS in skype.

  1. Sign in to Skype.
  2. Click Main Menu in the bottom left corner of the application and select Options > Sound Devices.
