Skype, one of the biggest chat clients has launched a new project called "The Skype Collaboration Project" under which it is providing free group video calling and a few other things, all for free for one entire year. The collaboration project is open for everyone to join, and get those free credits. Here is how you can get one, and enjoy the free calling, which is worth around 71 euros if you are looking to get it directly.
Here are the different advantages with the Collaboration project from Skype:
- Free group video calls
- Free group screen sharing
- No advertising
- Live chat customer support
How to Get Free Skype Credits
To get the free credits, you need to visit this page
and enter your email address and check the box that says: "Tick this box to receive regular updates from the Skype Collaboration Project"
Once done, you will just need to wait for the next 48 hours, and any time during that, Skype would send you a mail with a special voucher code to use and redeem it on the website.
You would receive a mail from Skype with the voucher code to redeem. The same mail would have the link to redeem the code. If not, directly go to skype.com/go/voucher
Enter the voucher code that you received from Skype in the mail. Then check the "I agree to the Skype Terms of Service" and click on Redeem voucher or prepaid card.
Once you enter, it would take you to the success page saying that the code was accepted, and it should not take more than 15 minutes for the order to be processed, but in actual it takes just 2-3 minutes and a notification appears showing that your order is processed.
Go to the Payment settings page to verify it, and you would see the voucher delivered already in the account.
So, that was quite simple. No catch, this one is directly coming from Skype thus you don't need to run around with any special tricks because you would be a part of the Collaboration project the company is running. The best part of this is the free group video calling as well as the group screen sharing, which is something very good for the companies where online discussions are regularly done. As a part of this, Skype is also going to provide live customer support for one year, another added advantage.
