When you’re on a Skype call on your MacBook laptop, you may notice that the sound is coming from the right speaker only.
Rest assured, this is neither a bug nor a hardware issue.
Some Apple MacBook laptops have a built-in-microphone located near the left speaker under the protective grid. Skype can detect specific MacBook models and if the microphone is close to the speaker, it will mute the left speaker during calls to prevent unpleasant echoes and other disturbing sounds.
If you’re using headphones or a headset with a microphone for your Skype calls, you won’t be affected by this feature.
If you’re still having problems with the sound balance during your Skype calls, check this guide to change the sound output preferences on your Mac.
