The free voice over IP (VoIP) software Skype features conference calling and group-video functionality that enables you to make Skype calls with three people at the same time. Skype conference calls made to Skype users are completely free. You can include non-Skype users on the conference call by using purchasable Skype credit. Initiating a conference call with Skype users or non-users is a simple task that takes only a few minutes to complete.
Click "Start," type "Skype" into the search box at the bottom of the menu, then press Enter.
Press and hold the Ctrl key and select the three people you would like to call. If you want to include people who do not have a Skype account, click the "New" button and select "New Contact." Click "Save a phone number in your contact list" and enter the name and phone number of the non-Skype user, then click "OK."
Click the "Call Group" button once you have selected the three people you want to call to initiate the Skype conversation.
Tips & Warnings
- Skype Premium subscribers can initiate conference video calls by clicking the "Video Call" button instead of "Call Group."
