Today Skype announced that it has recently passed a major milestone in the company's history by surpassing 2 million users. This news comes hot on the heals of Microsoft announcing that Skype Group Calling would be moving from the Skype Premium subscription plan to being completely free for all registered users to utilize for all their conferencing needs.


"We are thrilled that two million people from around the world have joined us to ask and answer questions, share stories and talk about Skype," the company said in a blog post. "In parenting people often talk about the terrible twos, but on the Community we're planning for the terrific twos because there's so much ahead to get excited about. We're already shaping the future of Skype and we have no intention of stopping any time soon."

"To the two million users who have joined our Community already, thank you for joining us on this journey. We couldn't have done it without your support. If you haven't joined yet, there are great opportunities coming up on the Community to make yourself heard so now is a great time to dive in," it continued.
