Enterprise IT vendor Microsoft today announced that Skype will offer free group video calling for its customers across the world.
For the last few years, Microsoft has offered group video calling to Premium users on Windows desktop and Mac and more recently Xbox One.
In the future, Microsoft will be enabling group video calling for all its users across more platforms – at no cost.
Phillip Snalune of Microsoft in a blog post said: “While Skype is known for one to one video calling, we know it’s also essential to connect with the groups of people who matter most, whether friends, family or colleagues.”
“Now that Skype group video calling is available to everyone, free of charge, it makes conversations even easier. Group video calling enables so many important shared experiences, like my cycling team’s regular training check-ins and catch-ups,” Snalune added.
