Popular chat and video calling service, Skype has just launched a version of its video messaging services for Android and iOS operating systems. The service will allow users to send other users videos that are upto 3 minutes long and includes a facility for offline playback.
The service is part of Skype’s premium offerings and only offers free users a 20-message trial version, after which users may opt to continue with the service for a monthly charge of approximately Rs 270 ($4.99) or to simply discontinue sending video messages.
It certainly is odd, however, that Skype for Windows hasn’t been enhanced with video messaging yet, although Microsoft has made a commitment to include the service in the Windows app by the end of April, this year. So far, the service has only been launched in the US and UK, so Indian Skype users will have to wait a while until they can get their hands on what promises to be a very handy feature.
