The group chats may run for several years and users may be able to participate in as many groups as they like. What people need to know more about this feature is that the chats are saved in an archive. Those who need to go back for details such as URLs, email addresses and passwords may be able to search for it. They can also check agendas taken up in a meeting as well as other activities that they have done with a specific group.

People who are in business or those who need to collaborate with colleagues at international level may find this feature very useful. Skype has provisions for its users especially in managing the topic being discussed and the participants in the group chat. This would allow users to keep track of the things that have been taken up which they can also review later.

Sending Files

It is possible to send any type of file to contacts through Skype. Users may be able to do this just by clicking on the name and then the “Send File” option. Those who are in a chat may also do it from there. They can do it through the “+” option located at the upper part of the chat box. Users may send bigger files which they may not be able to send through their emails. This feature is available for those who are using Skype facilities on their Windows Desktop, Mac, Linux or Android run devices. Users though have to identify who will be receiving their files so that other parties in the group who do not need it will not receive it. This is also to avoid spamming especially when parties do not really know each other though they belong to a particular group.

People may gain personal or business benefit from using the features that are provided by Skype either for free or at an affordable cost. All are encouraged by the company to make use full use of what they are offering as the features are made accessible to most people around the world.
