SkypeHeadset- use your BT headset with Skype


SkypeHeadset is an interesting application that simplifies trying to use a Bluetooth headset with Skype.  I am a big fan of Skype and use it all the time but it’s so much trouble to get my Motorola headset working with Skype that I never bother.  This may change with SkypeHeadset which makes this process much simpler.  From the SkypeHeadset website:

  • Works with all popular Bluetooth headsets
  • Pick-up or hang-up Skype calls using the headset
  • Quick-dial a contact using the headset
  • Auto-dial a contact when they appear online
  • Mute/unmute a call from the headset

The latest version works with Skype conference calls so it sounds like a winner.  I hope to have a review of the program soon.  $10.



What this program does is facilitate the use of the headset. For example, it will automatically set the Skype audio device to the BT headset and back when it is connected/ disconnected.


Seems kinda strange to have to have a third party app to get your BT headset to work with Skype given the OS’s native BT support. I’m not sure, but I think the problem generally lies with the Windows OEM BT Stack most ppl have.

Before, using “SkypeHeadset” you might want to get the Widcomm Bluetooth stack first (1.4.2.x, 1.4.3.x, 3.x or 4.x) I understand that this update solves many BT problems.
