Is it still true that conference or group calls are only supported using the Skype desktop/laptop application, and not the mobile (iPhone/iPad/Android) version? An iPad may be able to participate in a conference/group call as an individual unit, but can not initiate/host the group call?
im now in a group call on my iPhone. but i coudnt initiate the call but someone from the desktop client initiated but we could have a very good quality call (3 calls)
To answer the first question in this topic. Indeed it is not possible to host a group audio call from an ipad.
Well it ought to be. My iPhone/iPad have much better auido quality than my laptop with Skyope and a decent mic/earpiece, I really wish the conf facility were available for IOS.
Your answer helpfully confirmed that this kind of functionality in the mobile application isn't available. The following question from me is that will skype mobile applications support call group functionality in the near future?
This is the reason why I've switched to google hangout. You can make group video calls for free and from your phone or iPad, etc.
