Skype now allows group calls with up to 100 people


It is no secret that during the pandemic and inventory due to Corona the demand for virtual communication tools increased dramatically, and in the midst of the widespread need, it may have been Zoom that has been able to make the most of it, as it has captured millions of users despite its security and privacy problems.

However, old programs like Skype still exist even though some have forgotten them a little. In fact, Microsoft reminded us in April that we can use Skype to make group video calls without recording and without installing anything. Now we can also use it to make calls that support up to 100 participants.

With the just-launched Skype 8.66 version, it is now possible to add up to 100 participants to a call. The previous limit was 50 people, so Microsoft doubled the size of the group and is still free of charge for all Skype contacts.

It's important to make sure we're talking about skype voice calls between Skype contacts. Calls require mobile phone numbers, and video calls continue to support a maximum of 10 people at a time, although there is no time limit as in Zoom.

This feature will gradually reach all users, so it is possible to receive it before others.
