Microsoft Skype Lite gets group video calling

Earlier this year, Microsoft India released a toned downed version of Skype called Skype Lite, designed  for low-end Android phones and to be more data friendly.

Now Microsoft has added a new feature to the Lite version, that will allow you to make group video calls. The new addition comes on the occasion of Diwali, where people make more phone calls and send more texts to their family and friends to exchange Diwali wishes. The popular WhatsApp, which has over 200 million users in India, doesn't offer group group video calling functionality.

To make a group video call, simply tap on the call tab on Skype Lite, and start the group call with your friends. In addition Microsoft is also making it easier for people to attend a video call, who don't have a Skype account.

You can also share a Skype Lite group call link with your friends who are no registered with Skype on popular social apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or SMS, and invite them to join the call. Anyone who receives the group video call link from you can join the call as a guest on Skype Lite right away, by providing a name, without the need to sign up or sign into a Skype account. The guest account is valid for 24 hours.

Along with the group video calling function, Microsoft has also added a couple of more features: a new Skype bot called Ruuh, which apart from chatting, will also help your create fun, personalized Diwali cards. And a new collections of Diwali themed emoticons.
