How do I make a group video call in Skype for Windows RT?

With Skype you can enjoy group video calls with up to 25 people (24 plus yourself), anywhere in the world.

To set up a group:

  1. Start Skype.
  2. Tap or click the Group icon at the top-left of the screen.
  3. Select the contacts you want to have in your group instant message.
  4. As you add contacts to the group chat, they'll appear at the bottom of the screen. When you've added everyone you want, click add.

  5. Click the video call button .

Having problems with the video on your group call? Your camera might not be working properly with Skype, but don't worry; this guide can help you sort it out.

If your camera is working properly, check this guide to make sure your camera, microphone, and speakers are properly set up.

Although you can start group calls, you may have difficulty joining some. We recommend you always initiate group calls if using this platform. Functionality may be limited for mobile participants on the call i.e. they can join with audio only.
