Skype to roll out its group video calling on IOS and Android


Skype is one the most popular video calling platforms and has been there around for some time, yet it has ignored iPhone and android users when it comes to group video calling. However, the company has announced that it will be rolling out the group video calling option in Western Europe and North America in the next two weeks.

Users will be able to chat with 25 participants at a time and the video quality is also great since it will be at 1080p quality. The users will also have the option of broadcasting from either back or front camera. Some user interface changes have also taken place for group calling.

Group video calling isn’t the only feature that the IOS and Andriod user will experience. The company also plans to add a feature which will enable the user to invite anyone to a group chat.

However, Microsoft isn’t the first company to enable the group video calling on the phone, Google Hangouts has been at it for a long time and the feature lets 10 people at a time to use the group video calling. Skype has 300 million users which means a great addition. Apple still has FaceTime as the major video calling service.
