Skype for Windows 10 Mobile to add group video calling support soon

Microsoft is planning to add group calling features to its Skype mobile apps in the near future. That includes the Windows 10 Mobile, Android and iOS versions.

Microsoft says the group video call updates will be released sometime in the coming weeks, but people who are interested in trying out the feature early can pre-register on Microsoft's site. There's no word on when those early previews will begin.

Microsoft is also celebrating Skype's 10th anniversary and talked about how much it has grown in the past decade:

"A lot has changed since 2006 when Skype was only available on computers. Now, over 750 million people have downloaded Skype on their Windows Phone, Android device, iPhone and iPad, meaning that Skype is one of the most popular free apps ever on the iTunes Store and Google Play Store. You can now use Skype on,, Xbox, Windows 10 Mobile and collaborate on Office Web Apps. We've also brought you other ways to enjoy video with video messaging, real-time speech and instant message translation and group video calling – where we've seen a 10x growth in less than 2 years."
