In order to compete with Google Hangouts, Skype has made group video calls free on the desktop and Xbox One consoles. Previously, the multi-pal chats were available via a premium subscription on the aforementioned platforms, but it's now accessible at no extra cost. And Microsoft's video-chatting service says its going to be free on more platforms "in the near future." Now that those visual conversations won't mean a hit to your wallet every month, Skype could be an attractive alternative to Mountain View's offering.
