My daughter mentioned to me last night that she and some friends tried to make a multipoint video call using Skype, but, had to sign up, and pay for, Skype Premium to do so. They used ooVoo instead. (NOTE: ooVoo when I last looked at it rocks!)
I looked this morning…..and here is the scoop: Skype multipoint is NO LONGER free. Rats!
Now you have to pay by the day for $4.99 (with a * which means be careful not to get screwed), or a monthly fee of $8.99 (with the same *).
The number of people allowed in a Skype Premium call is VERY hard to find (I mean come on, Skype people, make that information easy to find…geeezzz) is a max of 10.
All good things must end….they do need to make money.
