twice i've tried to use it with separate clients, and it's always been really horrible; always have to switch to skype...the audio always goes out, and the video lags slowly..it's not my connection since switching directly to skype and google voice works well
It is not just you.
This is a "work in progress."
I have tried this out.
But most of us find the performance of Upwork's built-in video and audio tools insufficient. So we use Skype or something else.
Presumably these tools will improve over time.
The video is definitely laggy. But I have had no problem with the audio. Pretty convenient sometimes to have that feature.
However, it would be great if we could actually call each other up, with like a ringer. Instead of the message that says a call has been initiated.
I always miss those messages.
