Microsoft promised Skype group video calling for smartphones last month, and now it has rolled out to iOS and Android yesterday.
The company says that it has now started to introduce Skype group video calling for smartphones and tablets in North America and Western Europe and it will launch worldwide in March. It will be available for free as Skype said “Everyone will have the freedom to enjoy totally free group get-togethers anytime, anywhere — and with anyone they want.”
This feature allows groups of up to 25 people to chat on video calls via the Skype app and the person talking with be displayed in the center. Skype’s video calls will be in HD and will be optimized for the device you’re using at the time. There is a grid view which will allow to see all the participants and also there is a focus view in which Skype automatically focuses on the active speaker.
Notably, the new group video calls don’t require a Skype account in order to participate. Skype users can invite participants to join calls by sharing URLs.
