Skype is a great free tool for making a video call with friends and family and which is especially important at these times. In the past group video calls where complicated to get setup but with recent changes to Skype it’s simple, quick and easy.
Your friends and family don’t have to have Skype installed on their machines and they don’t even need a Skype account for it to work.
If you are arranging the call then you will need Skype up and running on your machine but nobody else does.
In this video I show how you can create a group call, email or text the link to your friends and how they can video chat with you without using the Skype app or having to create a Skype account. In the video I use a laptop but the same thing works on iOS and Android with the Skype app installed.
