- [Instructor] We've seen text conversations,…audio and video calls,…but we've only seen conversations between two people…so far in this course.…You can also make calls and hold text conversations…for larger groups of people,…and there are two ways to do that.…First, when you start the conversation,…you can start by choosing multiple people.…So I can click on one person to select them.…Then, on Windows, I can hold the Control key,…or on Mac, I'll hold the Command key.…And while I'm holding that, I can click on another person.…Now, I have two people selected.…
I could select more, but I'll stick with two for now.…Then, I'll right-click on one of those two people…and choose what type of call I want,…an instant message, an audio call, or a video call.…I'm going to stick with IM for now, so I'll click on that,…and now we see a familiar interface.…I can send those text-based messages,…but these messages go to everybody in the group.…At the top of the window,…it says there are three participates,…and I can see the names of the other two people.…
