Windows 7 and 10: Prioritize network traffic for a Skype?

I have some Windows users with Skype for Business 365 Online. They occasionally get the message "Your connection is causing audio quality issues. Speeding it up might help. Try closing programs that are using the network and stop and downloads or uploads." It's not a network issue have looked closely at other metrics and non-windows Skype users don't have this issue. Is there any way to prioritize Skype for CPU and/or network? Thanks!

Traffic QOS is normally configured on the hardware devices on your network - switches/firewalls.

I found that through group policy you can set the DSCP values for Skype traffic. This would be a key to being able apply policy at the connected switch and beyond.
