Skype today announced that it is bringing free group video calling for Windows 10 Mobile users. The company is launching mobile group video calling to celebrate ten years of Skype video. Microsoft is allowing users to pre-register for the new feature, which will be rolling out to Windows 10 Mobile, Android, iPhone and the iPad.
Since the launch of Skype video, people across the globe have enjoyed nearly 2 trillion minutes of free video calls – from soldiers attending the birth of their child, to explorers connecting with students from the top of Everest. Today, we are excited to announce the next evolution – group video calling on Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows 10 Mobile.
To celebrate 10 years of video calling, get ready to welcome group video calling on Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows 10 Mobile – everywhere, completely free. We’ll be rolling out this new feature to our hundreds of millions of mobile users in the coming weeks, but if you want to preview before everyone else, hit the link below, provide us with some details and we’ll do the rest.
