PCWorld: Skype Group Video Chat – Get It While It’s Free

Group video chats can be a great way for small business teams to meet without traveling. Skype, one of the best and cheapest online conferencing solutions, now adds video into the mix for group calls. Skype will start charging for it as soon as it finalizes this version upgrade, but it will still likely cheaper than many competing video conferencing solutions.

“Have you ever used group chat wishing that you could use video? Now you can chat with up to four other people by using the latest beta version from Skype.

Unfortunately, the group video chat is a premium feature, which will require you to pay for it; however, it is free until the full version is released later this year. Regular video chat will continue to be free of charge. Skype has not released pricing plans for the new feature. However, compared to competitors, Skype has been known to have remarkably cheap plans. For only a couple dollars per month you can make calls to landlines and mobile phones. If current trends continue, you can expect group video chat to be not much more.”
