Skype... - January 22nd 2011, 04:09 PM

Hey, so i recently got skype and got it working fine.

But someone told me it was possible to do group calls with video?


I've managed 1 on 1 with video, or a phone call with a couple of people in... but can't do both together


Is it possible? if so how?

Thanks xx

You need the latest update of it

Click on Help and the click Check For Updates.

It should work then

If it still doesn't work check that the other people in the call have the latest version too.

Dependant upon if you have a Mac or a PC, you can group video call.

The only thing about that is, it's like a ten day free trial. Once your trial expires, you have to pay for that feature of Skype.

One on one vid is always free though.

But both a mac and a PC can group call, you just won't have the option of video.


So, to answer your question. Yes, it's possible if you have a PC. Sign up for the free trial. If you have a Mac, you have to pay.

EDIT: Some people didn't have to pay, or sign up for the trial. It may just be that you won't have to either. The feature might come free with the newest update

Hope I helped

I'm not sure if this differs in the US then because I never had to sign up for a free trial of anything to do group video calls.
