After spending some time in beta testing, Skype finally brings support for 50 people in a call to everyone. Previously Skype only allowed 25 people max in a group video or audio call. Compared to that Apple’s Facetime allows 32 participants. They have also changed how the call starts. Unlike the default ringing, now Skype pushes a simple notification asking you to join the call. However, the call maker can ring individual members and can even ring everyone if the number of participants is less than 25.

Call up to 50 people at once with Skype!

Starting today, Skype is doubling the amount of people that can simultaneously be on a video or audio group call. You can now call and have up to 50 people in a call, all at once. Whether you’re catching up with your friends, having a team status update, or a conference call with speakers based all around the globe, Skype makes it easy to get everyone in one place. Every Skype group with up to 50 people now supports calling, whether you’re ringing just your best friend or 45 coworkers.

Group call notifications

With the increase in the number of participants, we also made a few changes to how these larger calls start. We added a notification to replace the ringing as the default, allowing every member of the group to receive a quick ping to join the call. These notifications are a simple, unobtrusive way to get your calls and meetings (be it between family, friends, podcast guests, or coworkers) started. If the notification of starting a call is not enough, you can select individual members to ring, or if your group is less than 25 participants, you can ring the entire group.

Skype made it easier for you to get together with a larger group of people.

Large group calling is available on the latest version of Skype. For more questions about group calls and our new notifications, read our support article. We also love to hear from you on the Skype Community, where millions of Skype users have registered to share their expertise, feedback, and Skype stories.

As we are approaching the official 19H2 update, more dark elements are coming to Windows. OneNote, which is a major Office Suite app, also got support for Dark Mode. Aggiornamentilumia.it reports that they managed to lay their hands on an unreleased build of OneNote for Windows 10 which features an all-new Dark theme.

 

As you can see, the dark mode excludes the actual work surface of OneNote.  The theme is synchronized to your MS Account, meaning the theme will follow you from PC to PC.

What do you think about the new Dark Theme? Let us know in the comments below.

At the Game Developers Conference 2019, Microsoft is said to launch its Xbox Cross Platform gaming. This will allow us gamers to play Xbox Live titles on our Android, Nintendo Switch and others.

You can understand this as the Minecraft Game, which is the Xbox Live Title, currently available on various platforms. Minecraft requires users to log in to the Xbox Live account.

This is what the GDC 2019 website says:

Xbox Live is one of the largest, most engaged gaming communities on the planet with decades of experience providing managed game services to developers that save you time and unlock all of the social and engagement features that players love.

Although Microsoft was trying previously, failed considerably. However, they are going to try this again. And this time they might do it. This proper SDK will allow the developers to design games that can run on any platform using Xbox Live.

See, the gaming between these available platforms is so confusing. But battle royale games are trying to unite these platforms. It is completely dependent on these giants to bring such tech that can unify all the platforms.

Microsoft 365

At a recent press event, Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella hinted that Microsoft will “soon be talking about” plans for Microsoft 365 consumer subscriptions. The service currently bundles Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security.

Satya’s words hint at a bigger Microsoft project aimed for consumers. After talking about the success of its Surface and Bing advertising businesses, Nadella turned to Office 365. By making a passing mention of Microsoft 365 for consumers, he said – “So I would say Surface is a brand, what we are doing with Office 365 or what we will soon be talking about as Microsoft 365 consumer subscriptions, those would be again completely consumer businesses.

Nadella also raised the possibility that a consumer Microsoft 365 subscription may include Xbox tie-ins as well.  “We have a structural position in that we have both a console business as well as a PC business which happens to be in fact bigger than the console business when it comes to gaming, and the idea is to aggregate those sockets with a subscription service.

Cortana no Longer a Google Assistant or Alexa Competitor

Satya Nadella revealed that Microsoft no longer sees Cortana as a competitor to Alexa or Google Assistant. “Cortana needs to be that skill for anybody who’s a Microsoft 365 subscriber. “You should be able to use it on Google Assistant. You should be able to use it on Alexa. Just like how you use our apps on Android and iOS so that’s at least how we want to think about where it’ll go.”

ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley previously reported that it could include Windows 10, Skype, Outlook, Office 365, and other services.  There’s not much news about the subscription. But given that Microsoft has started talking about it, we may hear more pretty soon.
