I just purchased a subscription with the purpose of using Skype on my iPad for making telephone conference calls with colleagues. I can't seem to find an option to add more than one participant on the iPad app. I can't seem to find any information on the website that clarifies if this is even possible? Anyone else know how this can be done?
Solved! Go to Solution.

This is now possible but there are tradeoffs. First delete the Skype for IPAD app. Then install the Skype for Iphone APP on the IPAD. To do this you need the latest IOS version on your IPAD. After it is installed you will be able to initiate a conference call. Now the tradeoff: In the Iphone version the initial screen is in landscape and only when you initiate a call does it switch to portrait.

Thanks for the opinion. I will forward this to the development team. However I can't tell you if or when this option will be enabled.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Well, just to let you know there are other apps that have already beat you to the punch, fring has 4-way conferencing for ipad
This is truly pathetic on behalf of skype. I only use this piece of crap iPad app when I'm forced to. I can't believe you can't initiate a group call, you can't even JOIN an existing conference call from one of your existing group chat windows.
Even my mac client won't let me join an existing conference call.. I have to redial everyone in the group even though they're already in a call.
