Vosotros refers to you plus two other people i.e you all.

If it was just the two people without you, the pronoun would be they i.e ellos ven.

Hola Annie

Yes, if "you" are part of the subject, that makes it a "vosotros":

Paula y Marta van al trabajo. (they go)

Paula, Marta y tú vais al trabajo. (Paula, Marta and you go [you all])

Saludos
