The free voice over IP (VoIP) software Skype features conference calling and group-video functionality that enables you to make Skype calls with three people at the same time. Skype conference calls made to Skype users are completely free. You can include non-Skype users on the conference call by using purchasable Skype credit. Initiating a conference call with Skype users or non-users is a simple task that takes only a few minutes to complete.
