Skype has finally made the group video calling feature free for desktop users running OS X or Windows, Linux and on Xbox One. Previous, group video calling used to be limited to Skypeâ€™s Premium users on Windows desktop and Mac for $4.99 for a day pass or $8.99 per month. The same feature has been available for free on Google Hangouts for quite a while now and now Microsoft has decided that itâ€™s time to offer this much needed feature for free.
In the near future, owners of mobile devices will also welcome this feature, as support for free group video calling will soon be added to Windows 8 touch, Windows Phone, Android and iOS. The fact that Skype user had to pay quite a big price for this feature has been one of the biggest complaints, but not anymore.
