Group chat with premium account

Greetings, 

 

My company ESPN just signed up for a premium account looking to group video chat. we recently purchased a samsung smart TV with version 3.1 "limited" pre-installed. Is there an option to upgrade this version that will support group video messages? I've read that verson 5.0 is needed to support group calls for skype limited. where can i find more assistance with this or be directed to a live chat since we're a premium account user

Re: Group chat with premium account

Hi,

 

We also just bought a Samsung SMART TV and can't do group VC.

 

I think it is ridiculous given the technology avilable. Is there any solution?!!

 

Almost £3k on a TV!!

Skype group video calling is currently only supported on Skype for Windows and Mac and Skype for Xbox One. The Skype app on your TV doesn't support group video calls, I'm afraid.


Did my reply answer your question? Accept it as a solution to help others, Thanks.

And really skype / ms think this is acceptable? Skype and it's partners have done their best to downplay that this can't be done - the internet is full of people who have bought stuff expecting this to work. Skype need to be clearer as this appears to be a policy issue not a technical one. I guess now skype is part of MS we are all supposed to go and buy Lync for business just to video chat with relatives in other countries? As community manager Please encourage MS to get a definitive statement out on this issue along with a definitive statement for the logitech and telyhd camera (the latter which can do multiparty video but only with their non skype service).
