Get Group Video

As of February 2011, you need to purchase 'Skype premium' in order to use 'Group Video'. The cost is $5 for a day (plus tax) or $8.9 a month (plus tax). Apart from these two price plans, there is also a 7-day free trial, so we recommend testing it out with the free trial first.



Select Several Users from Contact List

Select users that you would like to group video from the contact list, to the left of the Skype screen. Select multiple contacts while holding down the 'Ctrl' key. (Clicking users from the contact list while holding down the 'Ctrl' key lets you select multiple users.)
