Skype is considered as the ultimate tool for communication at both professional and personal level. Out of its several amazing features, one of the coolest features of Skype is the option to create a Group. With the grouping feature on your Skype, you can easily coordinate with your friends and colleagues. This program not only offers conference calling and group chats but also lets you host a group video or conference call for up to 25 people.
So, next time you wish to plan for a weekend getaway with your friends or need to discuss a project frequently on a regular basis in your office, creating a group in your Skype can help perform such tasks easily and efficiently.
