If you want to Skype multiple people, creating a Skype group video call (or Skype video conference) is just as easy as calling one person. Except you select up to 10 friends or contacts (though 5 is recommended as the optimum highest number for call quality), and hit the video call button. When they answer, you will see their faces appear in real time. If someone isn’t available, they will have the chance to join later.
