Wish a happy Diwali to your loved ones with Group Video Calling on Skype Lite

This Diwali, Skype Lite is bringing something special to our users in India – Group Video Calling, so you can celebrate Diwali with your family and friends on Skype Lite no matter where you are.

Available to all Skype Lite users across India, Group Video Calling allows anyone to join the group video or audio call on Skype Lite – all for free. Connecting is easy. Simply tap on the call tab on Skype Lite, and start the group call with your friends on Skype Lite. You can also share a Skype Lite group call link with your friends on popular social apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or SMS, and invite them to join the call.

Don’t have a Skype account? Forgot your password? Not a problem! Anyone who receives the group video call link from you can join the call as a guest on Skype Lite right away by providing a name, without the need to sign up or sign into a Skype account any more. The guest account is valid for 24 hours.

Group Video Calling makes it easy to connect, interact and catch up with friends and family, so even if you’re spending Diwali apart, you still have a way to be together.

And that’s not all! We want you to have more fun with the new Skype bot. Meet Ruuh, your new desi AI buddy, now available on all Skype products in India. While she likes to just chat with you and make friends, this Diwali, she can also help you create fun, personalized Diwali cards. Try it out here, or simply tap on discover tab on Skype Lite and select Ruuh bot to start chatting!

In the spirit of the Festival of Lights, we’re also releasing a new collection of Diwali themed emoticons on all Skype products in India to help you light up the night. Pick your favorites in the emotion picker within your Skype chats to celebrate Diwali with your loved ones.

Skype is all about bringing people together, so whether it’s face-to-face over a group video call, with a fun holiday card or a Diwali themed sticker, we’re happy to help make Diwali just a bit more special. To start, download Skype Lite here and celebrate Diwali with your loved ones.
