Skype has listened to its customer requests and will shortly be adding the most requested feature customers would like see added to the Skype software, multi person video conferenceing.
Next week Skype will launch a new beta version of its software that will include a 5 way video conference feature. The new Skype video conferencing service will be free to start, however later in the year Skype will start charging a small fee for the service.
The Beta Skype software will be available to download sometime during the week of May 10th for Windows based PC’s. There are no details as to when a HD version will be available.
In addition to the new beta software Skype will be adding monthly call subscriptions packages for its users. The new subscription packages start from as little as $1.30 per month and offer effective rates as low as $0.01 per minute to almost any destination around the globe. Users can then customise their calling plans by selecting the countries and type of phones they wish to contact using Skype.
Skype users will still be able to continue calling mobile phones and landlines without subscriptions as normal by purchasing Skype credit and using the pay-as-you-go option, its popular unlimited world monthly subscriptions will also continue.
