Error codes or messages are usually key to solving problems. If your app displays an error every time it fails to send texts, be sure to take note of it. Then, do a Google search about the exact message or code and see if there’s any available online solution.

Check Internet Speed

Video buffering usually takes more bandwidth than normal surfing or browsing the internet. Make sure your speed enough to stream that video. There are many ways to check internet speed. In our case, we are using a website called fast.com to check internet speed.

If your internet connection speed is faster but intermittent, it may also cause video streaming to lag or buffer. To check if you have an intermittent internet connection, connect to known working wifi. If the problem continues even when internet connection speed is fast, there may be other factors involved. Continue with the troubleshooting steps below.
