This week Microsoft has rolled out a new update for its Skype application for Android, OS X and iOS devices, bringing with it a number of new features, tweaks and enhancements.
A major new feature to be rolled out in this Skype update is the new Skype video messaging service, which has been designed to provide a an easy way to leave video messages when on and offline.
Using the new Skype video messaging service, Microsoft allows Skype users to send up to 3 minutes of video to each other, and in the future those that are using Skype for Windows or Windows Phone will receive a link to allow them to view video messages online. Skype video messaging has been in development for sometime, and Premium Skype users are expected to be able to send unlimited Skype video messages once it fully rolls out.
A Microsoft spokesperson explained that Windows users will be able to start sending Video Messages in late April 2013, but no reason was given for the late arrival on Windows devices.
