It’s been a decade since Skype first introduced video calling and it has decided to celebrate the occasion by launching Skype group video across Android, iOS and Windows 10 Mobile platforms. Skype has been one of the most widely used video calling services globally and it is said to have generated a whopping 2 trillion minutes of free Skype video calls in the last decade, globally.


Skype has assured that the feature will be available in the “coming weeks” and users can also try it out early by registering on the company’s tenth anniversary website. Skype was introduced for the mobile devices almost 6 years ago and ever since 750 million people have downloaded Skype on their phones and it is one of the most popular apps across the App Stores.

Mistake not, Skype is definitely not the first one to start the group video chatting services. Google Hangout had the feature for a while and many other video calling services are known for the same but adding the group video calling on Skype will take the video conferencing to an entirely new level. Skype has however not revealed the maximum number of participants the new feature can accommodate in the video chat function and it seems that we will be able to learn about it only once we try out the new feature.

Skype has changed the way we communicate and the video calls are becoming more frequent it is one of the best way to stay in touch with your loved ones across the world. Skype is also being extensively used for educational, health care and enterprise purposes and the addition of the group video calling feature will only make the product comprehensive in nature.
