Is there a hard limit to how many users can be in a group video call with the Basic (not Premium) version of Skype?
None of the information on Skype's website is 100% clear.
"In the future, we’ll be enabling group video calling for all our users across more platforms," says Skype's Phillip Snalune.
Microsoft previously offered the feature as part of its Skype Premium service, a $8.99 monthly subscription that includes some free calls as part of a larger package.
An individual day pass to access Skype Premium and group video calling cost $4.99 alone.
Skype group video calling allows users to participate in video chats with up to 10 people using PCs or Macs.
