It has been rolled out to users in the UK as well as most of Europe and the US.Facebook said that the feature will be rolled out to other regions “over the coming months”.
Users pay for services such as making calls from a PC to a landline or cell phone.
Skype consumer manager Neil Stevens, said group video chat will first be available to those who use the software on Windows PCs, and the company expects to roll out a Mac version later this year.
Mr Stevens said the feature is the one users have requested most.
He added that the company also plans to focus on getting Skype on devices beyond computers, such as smart phones.
In the ’90s, AOL was the king of online chat rooms.
