Doubling the amount of people that can simultaneously be on a video or audio group call, Skype users can now call and have up to 50 people in a call, all at once. The Microsoft-owned messaging and video-conferencing service announced that users will be able to call up to 50 people on a video or audio group call.
Skype, making it easier to get everyone in one place, supports group with up to 50 people whether you’re ringing just your best friend or 45 co-workers. Skype added a notification to replace the ringing as the default, allowing every member of the group to receive a quick ping to join the call. These notifications are a simple, unobtrusive way to get your calls and meetings (be it between family, friends, podcast guests, or coworkers) started. If the notification of starting a call is not enough, you can select individual members to ring, or if your group is less than 25 participants, you can ring the entire group.
With this new feature on Skype, you will be able to make these large group calls. For more questions about group calls and Skype’s new notifications, read its blog support article.
