We are excited to announce two big changes to group calling in Skype. Before now, Skype only supported calls in groups up to 25 participants - but today we are supporting calls in groups of up to 50! 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. With this update you will also see that the audio and video buttons are now enabled in these larger groups.

In addition, there is a new notification feature added to all group video calls. It makes ringing completely optional. When you start a video call in a small group, Skype will send a notification to that group, but if you still want to ring, you will be given the option once the call has begun.
