Only one participant needs a Skype Premium account for group video calls.
At Skype, we regularly release updates to our software. With every update, we introduce new features, improve existing ones and fix bugs.
Older versions of Skype are missing some of the great new features that Skype has to offer. That’s why Skype is set by default to update automatically to the latest version. However, you can disable automatic updates on your Windows desktop or Mac OS X at any time.
There are loads of new features and performance improvements within the latest version of Skype which make chatting, talking and video calling with your friends and family easier and more enjoyable.
No, updating Skype to the latest version does not affect your Skype Credit balance or subscriptions. Any Skype Credit or subscriptions you purchased will remain in your account as they were before the upgrade.
