Group calls are useful:

The Videophone user can call the Contact, or the Contact can call the Videophone.

Step 2: In Skype, the Contact can add others to the call.

  • On a mobile phone: Tap the screen, tap the 3 dots, then select Add people.
  • On a computer: Click the Add people icon (head-and-shoulders with + symbol).

If the Contact has Skype credit or a Skype subscription, the Contact can enter phone numbers to add people on landline phones (sound only).

Step 3: Each added person answers using their Skype device (mobile phone, iPad/tablet or computer) or — if called on a phone number — using their phone.

Up to 100 people can be on a Skype group call!

Videophone Group Call final

The Videophone user does not have to do anything. The screen splits automatically. Sit back and enjoy the group call!

People can leave the call at any time, in any order. The remaining people will continue to enjoy the call until there’s nobody left to talk to.

For security reasons, new Skype Contacts (or first-time guests) may not see each other’s video, or the video might be just one-way. If this happens: Simply tap the screen and switch your camera off and on again, or ask to be added back to the call and then leave.
