Skype for Web now available for everyone

by Todd Haselton | June 15, 2015

The Skype for Web (beta) is now available for everyone in the world to try. Monday’s launch follows the release to users in the United States and the United Kingdom on June 5, and it’s a compelling new way to use the popular VoIP software.

Skype for Web allows you to log in and access your account from a Web browser, which means you don’t need to install the application to chat with friends, speak over video chat and more. As we’ve said previously, this means you might be able to jump into a coffee shop and use Skype on a computer that you might not otherwise have the rights to install third party software on.

Sure, you probably have other means for accessing Skype, like on your own laptop, smartphone or tablet, but this is perfect for folks on the road who need to Skype in a jiffy. Unfortunately, while it supports Chromebook and Linux users for instant messaging, the full features aren’t available on those platforms yet.

Skype for Web supports plenty of languages, which you can check at the source link below.
