Skype has been on a roll recently. They are making a lot of improvements to the service in order to make it easier for users to connect with people that they need to. Just last week, Skype was integrated with Outlook.com, allowing users to make calls directly from their email inbox. This integration with Outlook.com is due to the fact that Microsoft now owns Skype. Recently the video messaging feature was added to Skype’s desktop application for Windows, today an update brings the same feature to the Skype app for Windows 8. The Windows desktop version which brought this feature to PCs running Windows 7 or higher is actually the latest beta build of Skype, whereas the Windows 8 app is the consumer build.
The service has been testing this particular feature on a number of platforms such as iOS and Android, and is now available in preview form for them. Its very easy to send a video message through the app. Simply click on the + located under a contact’s picture and there’ll be an option to send them a video message. Once it is recorded and sent, it will be visible in that contact’s chat feed. The update app can now be downloaded from Windows Store.
