Does the Launcher raise my ping or cause any change to my connectivity?
The Launcher makes no alterations to the VIPKID Teacher App, neither to the internal networking nor to the functionality. It also does not use the internet connection at all apart from downloading updates for itself whenever we release a new version. So no ping or other network latency will be affected.
If you are experiencing issues, we have equipped the FeedbackPanda Launcher with a adjustable setting for how often it connects to the VIPKID Teacher App.
Click on Settings in the bottom right corner and set the VIPKID Connector Mode to a slower setting than what is currently selected. After that, restart the launcher.
It still should not have any effect on connectivity, but every computer is different, and some computers experience connectivity issues when they are too busy, which is why we added that setting.
