Microsoft has this week announced the launch of its beta development stage for its new service Skype for Web that allows users to make video calls directly from their browser via the Skype.com website.
The great thing about Skype for Web is that you don’t need to download any application or software before you can make a call, simply sign up for an account and you will instantly be able to start instant messaging directly from your browser.
Skype for Web currently supports Internet Explorer, Chrome on Windows, Firefox or Safari browsers via computer installations and if you already have a Skype account you can go directly to the Skype.com website, log-in and see all your contacts and latest conversation history. Microsoft explains :
“Skype for Web makes it quicker and easier than ever before to connect with friends, family and colleagues around the world, for free – directly from Skype.com. It’s perfect if you prefer using the web rather than an app: perhaps you’re sitting at a computer that doesn’t already have Skype downloaded. Or maybe you’re on the go and using an internet café or hotel computer whilst on vacation where you can’t download Skype at all. Using Skype for Web makes it more convenient to get to your conversations.”
