Microsoft is now offering Skype group video calling for free to users of Windows desktop, Mac and Xbox One.
The company also said it plans to offer the free group video calling capability across more platforms in the future.
Previously, group video calling had been available to Windows desktop, Mac, and Xbox One (with an Xbox Live Gold membership) users only with a Skype Premium account, which cost $9.99 a month (or less per month if paying by the full year).
Microsoft says group video calling can be between three and 10 people, depending on the device, and recommends that they be limited to up to 5 people for the best quality.
Microsoft has not said when free group video calling will be coming to other platforms, including its own Windows Phone and Windows RT platforms, according to ZDNet.
