Microsoft has officially begun the rollout of free group video chats to Skype on iOS and Android mobile devices.
The feature will first arrive on smartphones and tablets across North America and Western Europe, where it will be available in about a week. Microsoft promises mobile group chats will be globally available by March.
The company initially announced the beta version of this feature in January, to mark the 10-year anniversary of Skype’s video chats. Users were given the option to pre-register and test group video calling on mobile devices. Microsoft reports “tens of thousands” chose to do so.
