Skype launches its video messaging service across all its major platforms – Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and BlackBerry. Unfortunately, the service is currently not available on Windows Phone. The service is out of beta and now available to all Skype users – completely free of charge. Video messages can be received and viewed on any platform or device running Skype.
Skype video messaging lets you send short video messages over Skype. You can now send unlimited video messages to your Skype contacts. The recipient of these messages need not be online when you send them and they’ll be able to view your video message as soon as they sign into Skype.
According to Skype, recording a Skype Video Message is simple. Here is how you can record a video message.
- First, tap the “video message” button.
- Next, tap the record button to capture your video message.
- You can record a message of up to three minutes, which can be previewed prior to sending. If you’d like to, you can delete and re-record until you are completely happy with it.
- When you are ready, simply click on the envelope icon to send your video message to the recipient.
