Want to share a video message with your friends but can’t reach them on Skype? Worry no longer, the company announced a new video messaging feature (currently in beta) on Friday that allows Mac, Android and iOS users to share video clips with one another. Windows Phone users can join in on the fun, too, but the option isn’t embedded inside the application – that’s a bit surprising considering that Skype is owned by Microsoft. The service is currently rolling out to users in the United Kingdom and the U.S., among others.
AllThingsD said the video chats, which are sort of like video voicemail of sorts, can be anywhere between a few seconds and three minutes long.
You’ll just need to make sure that the latest Android, iOS or Mac Skype client is installed before you get started.
