Making Video Calls with Skype
One-on-one and group video calls on Skype are free, which means you can chat using your webcam whenever you want.
You can also turn your webcam on or off during a call—even a regular Skype-to-Skype voice call. Just click the Video button inside the call window.
So what do you see when someone calls you on Skype? A pop-up window that looks like this:
To answer with your webcam, just click the Answer with video button or Decline if you're too busy to talk (or don't know the caller). You can also answer without video by clicking Answer so the caller can't see you on your webcam. You can always turn video on or off during the call if you change your mind. If you do nothing, the call will keep ringing until the other person hangs up.
Group video calling is an easy way to talk with several people at the same time. To learn more about making a group video call, check out this support page from Skype.
