Skype Now Playing Nice with Outlook.comApril 30, 2013 1 Comment
Microsoft has announced that you can now Skype from Outlook.com. The rollout began today in the UK and will rollout to the US and Germany in the coming weeks. Soon after, the service should begin popping out everywhere else until the globe is covered.
Even with the best email service, sometimes text isn’t enough, and we all face those situations where it is just easier to jump on a call to talk something out. We know sometimes a quick call can accomplish more than a long email reply.
That’s why we are bringing Skype audio and video calling to your inbox. Now, with Skype for Outlook.com, you can choose the right medium for your message, whether it is an email, call, video call or instant message (IM) — you can connect with your Skype and Messenger friends all in the same place. This experience will start rolling out in the U.K. today, is coming to the U.S. during the coming weeks and is on track to be available worldwide this summer. For those of you in the U.K., download the Skype plugin for Outlook.com now.
