Let’s face it, moms are busy. We hardly have time to get done everything that we need to do in the day. So, when it comes to staying in touch with family who live in another state, it can be quite challenging, especially if you can’t afford to fly as often as you’d like.
The best way I’ve found to stay in touch with family is through video calling. It’s great because your parents can see their grandkids, the grandkids can visually see the reactions on your families face. It makes for a much more interesting conversation and one that we find ourselves doing often.
A new feature that Skype offers is the ability to do group video calling. That means you can get your parents & your siblings in on the video chat at the same time. What about your friends, your co-workers, the possibilities are endless.
Basically, it’s now easy to catch up face-to-face with more people at the same time on a group video call with Skype. Whether you’re kicking off a project or showing off the latest addition to the family, it’s the next best thing to being there.
What do you need?
At least one person on the call needs Skype Premium or a group video subscription from Skype Manager.
For everyone on the call to see video, each person needs:
- a webcam (discount available with purchase of Skype Premium).
- a broadband connection.
- Skype 5.0 or higher or the Skype business version.
Experience the magic of having your loved ones together for regular family catch ups. Ideal if you work from home, too. Simply add two or more people to a video call to get together face-to-face.
It’s time to say more and stay human. It’s time for Skype.
