Re: Minimal internet speed for video chat?

Hey ,


The only information I can find regarding this is that you need to be connected to WiFi in order to use the video chat.  


Here are a few notes from the user guide:


I want to improve the chat quality:  You or the person you are having the Video Chat with may not have a sufficiently strong Wi-Fi signal. Try a different Wi-Fi network with a stronger connection, or move closer to the wireless access point.


My chat was dropped: Try connecting to a different Wi-Fi network. You cannot switch Wi-Fi networks during a call.


Hope this helps.
