It’s easy to make group video calls on Xbox One using Skype. Before you make a group video call, your Kinect sensor must be plugged in. You can initiate a group video call with a friend and then add others for a maximum of 4 people in a group (including yourself). However, if someone else on Skype initiates the call from another device such as a Windows 8 PC, that call can include up to 25 people.
Note For video chat, participants need to be on an Xbox One console or PC. Answering a video call from a phone will switch the chat to voice-only.
