Microsoft-owned video calling platform Skype has added support to call up to 100 users at a time. The company will allow users without an account to invite up to 99 people to a call with one link.
Also, the platforms will allow users to run these calls for up to 24 hours.
Skype users will be able to see up to 99 other users in the new Large Grid view that shows up to 49 people on-screen simultaneously.
Earlier this month, Skype had added support for noise cancellation to its desktop version. In a blog post, the Skype team states that this was originally made for Microsoft Teams. “We are pleased to announce the release of our latest background noise suppression feature in the Skype desktop app. Originally developed for Microsoft Teams, this new feature is designed to silence just about everything except for your voice when you’re meeting on Skype,” it adds.
Last month, for its Android users, Skype rolled out version 8.68 and with it rolled out the Background Blur feature to the app.
Along with this, Microsoft had also updated the Windows, Linux and Web versions of Skype with features like a new custom reaction picker and more. For iOS users, the company had updated with a share extension and dark theme as well as improved performance.
