Skype Integrates Windows Family Feature to Connect Family Members

If you are one of the Parents, like me, who use the Windows Family Feature to monitor what your kids are on till they graduate, then here is a Skype news that you would love.

Skype Team has integrated Windows Family feature in the app that will make Family chat easier. The App will automatically create a “My Family” group with all of your family members that are included in the Microsoft Family. So yes, make sure that Skype Account and Microsoft account are the same ones which are associated with Windows Family feature.


While this can be manually done, but then having it already there is a matter of convenience for Group Chat, Group video calls, sharing pictures and so on. However, this is now without the options.  In case somebody wants to quit, he can make a quit or you can take the charge, and remove whoever is not needed. Each of the family members will receive a notification when the group is created, and that group will appear in everyone’s conversation history on whatever device they’re using Skype.

What do you think of this? Do you think this is going to help? IMO it’s damn too simple. Unless this group get some extra add-ons included, I dont see why this will get any attention.
