Microsoft has just released a new Skype video message service for desktop users. The service was already available on iOS, Android and Mac users but this is the first chance that desktop users can begin sending video-messages.
There is currently a preview of the Windows desktop client that can run on Windows 7 but the Windows 8 version is still on the way. The feature allows users to send short video-recorded messages (max 3min) to other Skype members to play at a later time.
Eventually it will become part of the Windows 8 app that is available to download via the Windows store. If you don’t have Skype premium ($5 a month) then you can send 20 free messages but will have to subscribe if you wish to send anymore than that.
