What do I need to make a group video call?


To make a group video call*, at least one of the people on the call needs to have Skype Premium (for personal accounts) or Skype Premium in Skype Manager™ (for business accounts). If you’re not sure which type of account you have, it’s easy to find out.

If you have a Skype business account, to make a group video call, your administrator will need to allocate you Skype Premium.

Did not work for me.  I purchased a day pass and was never able to connect for a three way (2 macbook pros  and 1 HP running Windows 8.1).  Tech support useless.  "Support" meant having a on-line chat, having me reload Skype (which was already up to date) and was left to me to figure out if it worked.  So I need to buy another day pass to figure it out and for all I know it still does not work.  Tech Support to me means: stay on it until you fix it.  Not here.  Skype expects me to throw good money after bad.  Rotten service.  Day pass is intended to encourage people to contemplate Premium.  For me it did the very oppositie because of poor client service ethics.  


I guess I am used to Apple Support which is always outstanding as they get to the bottom of the problem and FIX it.
