Free video chat skype
Skype's group video call feature is now free for all users.
The company introduced group video calls in 2010, supporting group video chats for up to 10 users at once.
On Tuesday, Microsoft released a free standalone version of Skype Meetings, its group video chat tool.
The new Skype Meetings lets users easily start a group video call with up to 10 participants (at first, then only three after the first 60 days), without needing to sign up for any of Microsoft’s other tools.
Until now, Skype Meetings was only available as part of Skype for Business, its paid version that’s part of Office 365.
The paid version, not surprisingly, comes with more features, including the ability to host group video calls with up to 250 participants.
You also have to select a friend to chat with prior to launching the call.This new feature may be related to the recent acquisition of Quick Fire Networks, a company that invested resources in developing video compression tools.That video compression technology is also likely being used for playing uploaded video to Facebook users, especially video that auto-plays when browsing the Facebook feed on a mobile device.none of what I'm finding shows a hard number for how many users can be in a Skype group video conference while using the free version. It's looking like it may be a soft limit based on each users system hardware and the bandwidth of all the users.Available for mobile users utilizing either a Wi-Fi or LTE data connection, Facebook has added a new video calling feature to Messenger for users in eighteen regions around the globe.
