that is an issue with your sound

can you hear other sounds on your computer ?

if you can than your skype is set to use the wrong speakers

click on the skype menu


then preferences

then audio settings

click on the playback device and make sure that you have the right device selected.

if your computer does not have any sound on anything than let me know and i can show you how to fix that.

If you are using it on a phone or tablet rather than a computer let me know that as well please it would be different instructions
