What is the purpose of the Skype™ button in HUE Intuition?

The Skype button is no longer part of HUE Intuition version 2.0 and later. Older versions of the software included the feature as described below. While there are no plans for the button to return, all HUE cameras are still compatible with Skype.

Clicking the Skype™ button in HUE Intuition will automatically disconnect your HUE’s video stream and launch Skype™. The camera’s stream will only work in one application at a time.

To make video calls on Skype™, open the Tools menu and pick Options, then go to the Video settings. The HUE camera should be selected and showing a preview of your video as below.


The Audio settings tab lets you check that HUE’s USB microphone is selected.

On a Mac, the settings are in Preferences then the Audio/Video tab.

Note: If Skype™ isn’t installed on your computer, you’ll be taken to the Skype™ website in order to download and install the software. Using Skype™ for computer-to-computer video calls requires setting up a free Skype™ account.
