Hi, econdeza, and welcome to the Community,

 

You can share a group call with up to 25 people, anywhere in the world, and if everyone’s on Skype it’s completely free.

If you’re calling people who are on a mobile or landline, you’ll need a little Skype Credit or a subscription.

(For a group video call, one person on the call must be a Skype Premium subscriber, and the limit there is ten (10).)

 

Regards,

Elaine

Hi, econdeza,

 

Took a little digging, but I did find it in the FAQ articles!

https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA1005/how-do-i-start-a-group-instant-message-in-skype-for-windows-desktop

 

A group conversation allows you to send instant messages to two or more contacts simultaneously. You can do this by either creating a group from scratch, or by adding contacts to an existing conversation. Currently, you can add up to 300 contacts to one IM conversation.

 

Cheers,

Elaine

Because of Xbox One, I was given Skype Premium. When I try to video chat with more than three people, I loose my ability to see video of all people but people in the group can see video. I also cannot transmit video. Why?

Re: Number of participants allowed on free skype conversation?

Is there a way to get over 25 participants on a conversation even at a cost?
