Microsoft recently released a new update to its Skype app. The update brings many new features and changes. The new feature that is worth to talk about here is the ‘Group video calls with 50 people.’ This does exactly what it sounds like. Aside from that, there are plenty of other new features and bug fixes. You can read them below.

  • Group video calls with 50 people – First Skype supported a maximum of 25 participants for group video calls. With today’s update, the maximum number of people who can participate in a group video call rises to 50.
  • Notifications instead of ringing – For group video calls, notifications will be sent instead of using the more intrusive ringing tone. The option is still available, but it is not enabled by default.
  • Skype Windows 10 video calling groups
  • Email Notifications – In the Skype settings, under the heading Notifications, two options to receive e-mail reminders for missed calls and unread messages have been added. The options are active by default.
