Microsoft has updated the group notification system.

What changed

Previously, Skype video chat supported up to 25participants, which was a little more modest compared to the capabilities of the FaceTime application: Apple's brainchild can hold up to 35 people in one video call. However, now Microsoft is again in the lead; in the new update, the developers not only increased the maximum limit for video calls, but also made changes to groups, allowing the participant to choose from whom he wants to receive calls. The average user will hardly feel the difference, but the corporate segment, where Skype's position is still strong, will be able to find use for the innovations.

In recent months, this is not the first Skype update dedicated to video calls. Previously, Microsoft added the ability to blur the background to the application.
