To mark the 10th anniversary of the launch of Skype's video calling feature, Skype today announced plans to bring group video calling to mobile devices, including the iPhone and the iPad. As with group video calling on desktop devices, group video calling on mobile devices will be free.
Group video calling has been available for free for Mac, PC, and Xbox One users since April of 2014. Prior to that, using the feature required users to have a Premium Skype subscription.
Skype plans to begin rolling out group video calling on mobile devices over the course of the next few weeks, but Skype is allowing customers to sign up with their email address and Skype user name to register for early access.
When signing up, Skype's registration process says access to mobile group video calling will be available in the next few days.
