Skype has been around for more than ten years now, and boy, does everyone love it. While it’s a lot of fun to be able to talk to and see your near and dear ones from oceans away, its not always convenient when its more than two people.
You’ve all been there – trying to fit the faces of your 6+ extended family into the tiny camera of your computer to be able to say hello to your sister who left town to study abroad. Or even in business meetings between clients across countries.
But fret not, for Skype has heard your suffering. Skype Group Video Calling has now been made free and available to everyone, making group conversations so much more convenient. Defying its long-term status as the go-to technology for one-to-one video calling, this feature will let you explore the realms of talking to more than one person from miles away.
Although Skype Group Video isn’t a new feature at all, its free availability is what makes it worthwhile now. Previously, Skype Group Video was only offered to Premium users on the Windows desktop, Mac, and Xbox One. The feature has now been made available for free for all users on these platforms, and more as the updates start to roll in.
Whether it is for catching up, huddling, reunions, meet-ups, night-outs, study-circles, clubs, family get-togethers or even business meetings, Skype group video is dedicated to enabling easy, fun and simple group communication.
With better feedback, the Skype team aims to improve in every aspect of its communication service, so opinions and conceptions are warmly welcomed at the Skype Community. You can also keep in touch with other Skypers on the Facebook as well as Twitter pages of Skype.
