Skype group calling is now free for everyone

Former premium feature is now available at no cost to all Skype users

You can call a group of up to 25 of your closest friends and colleagues for a video chat absolutely free now in Skype. Actually, you probably want to keep that down to about 5 if you want an acceptable level of call quality, but nonetheless the group call feature, which was formerly available only to paying premium subscribers, is now free for everyone.

Although Skype will allow up to 25 people in your group call, they recommend no more than five. Beyond that, bandwidth issues can degrade call quality pretty drastically.
