Skype Introduces New Monthly Calling Subscriptions, Group Video Chat Function


People can now call landline and mobile phones worldwide more affordably than ever before, thanks to the new monthly calling subscriptions offered by Skype.

Starting tomorrow, Skype is rolling out calling plans to more than 170 countries that provide customers with a savings of up to 60 percent compared to Skype's standard Pay As You Go rates.

Customers will also have more choice with subscription plans available in 60-minute to unlimited packages, and the ability to buy 1-month, 3-month and 12-month calling subscriptions.

Skype's range of subscriptions start from €0.89 ($1.09/£.69) per month and offer effective rates as low as €0.01 ($.01/£.01) per minute to almost any destination around the globe.

With the new subscriptions, Skype users have the flexibility to customize their calling plans in just three steps:

1. Select the countries you want to call
2. Decide whether you want to call mobile phones, landlines or both
3. Choose the plan that best suits your needs from 1-month to 12-months or 60 minutes to unlimited

Skype users can continue to call mobile phones and landlines globally without subscriptions by purchasing Skype Credit and using the Pay As You Go option. Skype will also continue to offer its popular unlimited world monthly subscriptions.

For full details on Skype's calling subscriptions, visit: www.skype.com/go/subscriptions.

Skype also plans a public "beta" test of a group video chat function that lets up to five people participate in a video call simultaneously.

The company will start offering the new fearture next week it for free, although charges are expected to apply in the newar future.

The group video chat will first be available to those who use Skype on Windows PCs, and the company expects to roll out a Mac version later this year.
