How to create groups in Skype? [Video]

Skype is our favorite tool to communicate at rtCamp and one of the main reason for that is because we often end up working from home and hence Skype is a easier way to be communicate and stay connected with the team. As an Editor I have to keep in touch with other Editors and Admins working on our blog network and one create way to collaborate is to create a group within Skype.

How to create a group on Skype?

  • When you sign into Skype and look up your contacts online. Click on Contacts and then Create New Group.
  • This will create a new group. Make sure to give it a relevant name and start dragging and dropping your contacts into this new group.
  • Also write in a message to your contacts to let them know that you have created a group on Skype which includes them.
  • Best way to keep in touch with such a group is to save them in your contacts list.

Below is a video demo of how it is done. 😉
