Skype group screen sharing now free for Mac desktop users


Microsoft is now allowing Skype Windows and Mac desktop users to enable group screen sharing for free for the first time, rather than needing a paid Skype premium subscription.

Just in case you are not familiar with group screen sharing, Microsoft has a handy video that shows how it works. Basically, it allows users to share images on their desktop with two or more people in a group Skype call. Allowing this feature to be free from now on will certainly be a huge help for people who use Skype a lot for group calls.

What do you think of Microsoft allowing group screen sharing to be access for free for Windows and Mac users?

This is great as I have switched from google hangouts to skype b/c my wife has a surface that cannot use hangouts so skype was the next best thing.

Good business move. . if Microsoft can get their window 8 os and their own hardware products together than they can be equal to apple product . I hope they can get it together . for the price , innovative , competition.
