Most PC or Mac compatible headsets and webcams will work with Skype, although you may have problems with older models. Just make sure you have the latest drivers for your headset or webcam installed from the manufacturer's website. Get help setting up your headset or webcam. Need help deciding which headset or webcam to get? We've compiled a list of the top rated devices according to Skype users. These devices have received the best ratings for call quality (which we collected from feedback surveys randomly displayed after Skype calls), as well as from our own audio and video lab testing. So, if you're looking for a new USB headset or webcam to improve your Skype call quality, this list is a good place to start. Another good source is the catalog of Skype for Business hardware, where certified headsets and webcams are listed in the Personal Peripherals & PCs category.
This list was updated February 19, 2016.
If you're a device manufacturer and want to make sure your device makes the list, follow the Skype Compatible Devices program. Note that hardware components or software drivers of some devices may be updated during a device's lifecycle which may impact Skype performance. The above recommended devices are based on a large number of users and devices; your device performance may vary.
