The free group video call option has been accessible on the desktop version of Skype for a while now, but fans can jump for joy as now Skype provides this feature for the mobile version as well.
Those of you who have iOS, Android and of course Windows Mobile of the Skype app will now be able to benefit from the group call feature. Since Skype has been around for 10 years now, Microsoft is using this particular anniversary to release the feature to the mobile versions.
Group video calls accessible for Android, iOS & Windows Mobile
According to Microsoft, Skype fans have been recurring to then video communication feature quite a lot over the last 10 years.
Users should recall that the group video call feature isn’t free of rules when it comes to the desktop variant, so the mobile one may also pack the same principals. Let’s go over them quickly:
- a Skype user can initiate a call to only 5 users at a time.
- you have 100 hours/ month, this means 10 hours each day.
- 4 hours/ person when it comes to video calls. If you reached the limit, you can only initiate audio calls.
Currently, there is no word on whether or not such policies will be applied for mobile Skype apps. And there is no knowing when exactly will the video call reach the mobile apps. But, the important thing is that it is happening. This is a big step for Microsoft as including this feature to the mobile versions mentioned above gives Skype a lot of advantages. This will surely differentiate the latter app from all of the rest of the calling and messaging apps out there.
