Microsoft: Skype allows conferences with 50 participants

Microsoft has expanded its free video chat software Skype. The program supports a maximum of 50 simultaneous participants in one conversation, previously 25 participants were possible. Skype approaches professional solutions such as Zoom and distinguishes itself from competing products such as Apple & # 39; s Group FaceTime, Google Hangouts or WhatsApp. The Facebook Messenger is an alternative with a maximum of 50 conversation partners.

According to Microsoft, it is still possible to call a group at the same time. However, this currently only works for conversations with a maximum of 25 participants. The type of information that the developers also change to a small notification instead of the default pop-up tone. "These notifications are an inconspicuous way to start your conversations and meetings"the company writes in a blog post.

Skype is not the most stable platform

Some participants are partially represented as icons in the upper corner of the program. For the most part, however, they are grouped in one symbol to save space on the screen. Conference leaders can decide for themselves which participants are prominently highlighted – in addition to the existing automatic speaker recognition in Skype.

However, Microsoft does not care about the performance of the software. Especially with many participants there are often sound and image artifacts in Skype, which can sometimes lead to hardly intelligible speech transmission. A maximum of 50 employees in a chat room should reinforce this problem. Nevertheless, it is good that Skype is being expanded because other products should do the same to remain competitive.
