Question about adding callers to a conference

Steve Matzura <number6@...>
 

This is the third time I'm asking this question. If I get no replies, I have to give it up for lost. How are additional incoming callers added to a Skype conference in Skype 8?

You can create group conversation but you cannot add some one in your conference while you are talking with someone!

Let me contact with Skype Support and if they give me some sort of trick, I’ll let you know!

Thanks for that information. If this capability has been removed, that's a big step backward. What good is a conferencing platform if incoming callers can't be added to an ongoing call? I presume creating a group conversation requires one person to call everyone else? That's not how it used to be. One more way Skype's starting to slide down that slippery slope into the category of unwantedness.

I did contacted Skype support and they did say that it is quite possible but they didn’t give me how to do that!

I have been waiting for their words since half an hour!

I will have a play with it and I will give you the lowdown on how to go about this.

I am certain it is not only doable, but easily so.

Here is what Skype support said:

Skype Support,  When you're on call, and someone tried to call you, click the Answer button. The current call will be put on hold. On the new call, to add the previous person that you're talking to (that was on hold), click the + button, then you will see your Contacts. Choose his/her name, then click Add. The previous person that you're talking to should accept your invitation for a conference call.

In order to learn it we’ll have to play with it!

And if a third person calls and we want to add it to the conversation?
We will answer and put on hold the first 2 callers, then we go to the list of contacts and add them again one by one to the conversation?
The procedure looks complicated. Or maybe it is not possible to have a conversation among 4 people?

Thanks very much for this. It's  reverse from version 7, where the second caller is added when the call is answered.

I almost think that somewhere is a mistake. Some of the callers might be put on hold for more times for each new caller that wants to join the conversation, which is strange.
MS probably have a reason to do this, for example for avoiding the possibility of calling somebody and then discovering too late that the person that answers is engaged in a conference, or other similar privacy things, but using this strange way is not a good solution.

Workaround: reject the incoming call, send a chat to the person saying you’ll ilvite him or her, and try adding to the group.
Bye!

Can you not just right click on a contact name during a call and
click add to call? I think if not try creating a group then adding
that way. I dunno. and this is just a shot in the dark as I don't
think anyone knows how to do this, or this might be a lost cause.

Roger on the lost cause. There is no right-clicking on anything in the new Skype.

actually, I can right click on a contact on the Mac. So can you right click on the contact while in a call and then add them that way? Or is it still not going anywhere. If it cannot then there probably is no way to do this without starting a new group and then maybe adding members to set group during the call. Good luck.
