Microsoft Announces Skype 4.0 For TVs, Offers Free Group Video Calling


Microsoft today announced the launch of Skype 4.0 on TV, allowing you to enjoy a free group video call on your 2014 Samsung Smart TV with built-in camera. With the free group video call feature, the entire group can see and talk to each other naturally and comfortably — just like you’re all together in the same living room. Microsoft has also added full HD (1080p) support, so video calls are also crisper than ever.

Skype has been partnering with Samsung closely to transform your smart TV into a communication hub. The new Skype 4.0 on TV is being rolled out with a firmware update to your 2014 Samsung Smart TV with built-in camera. To manually check if you have any available updates, just press the Menu button on your remote, and select Support > Software Update, then select Update Now. You can also find more information on the Skype blog to help get you started with the new Skype on TV.
