Skype doubling max number of group call participants to 50

Insiders will get the first shot at testing the increased group calling limit.

If you find yourself holding large meetings over Skype calls, you'll soon be able to make them even bigger. As part of an update being trialed with Skype Insiders now, Microsoft is doubling the maximum number of group call participants for Skype from 25 to 50 (via Neowin).


The increase in the group call limit is also coming with a change to how Microsoft notifies invitees to calls. "When you start a call in these large groups, it will send a notification instead of ringing all the members, to not interrupt those who can't join," Microsoft says. "With this update you will also see that the audio and video buttons are now enabled in these larger groups."


The notification change is being added to all group video calls, so even members of smaller groups will get a notification instead of a ring. If you want to join in after a call has started, you'll still have the option to do that.


The increased call limit is being tested with Skyper version now.
