Now, add up to 50 participants in Skype group video call
California, Mar 15 : Want to make a big announcement to your big team in another city? You can now do that with Skype which allows you to add up to 50 people in a single group video call.
As explained in the blog, when you start a call in large groups, it sends a notification instead of ringing all the members, so that those who are available can do so without interrupting those who can't join. Audio and video buttons are also enabled in the large group chats.
When starting a video call in smaller groups, a notification will be send to the group. You can choose to make it ring once the call has begun.
