While it’s been in beta for a while now, Skype’s finally made Skype Video Messages a fully-fledged feature. In a post on the Skype blog the company details the new feature, along with a how-to video and some steps for how to send video messages. It makes us wonder how difficult it could possibly be if  instructions are needed.

To Skype’s credit there aren’t many ways to conveniently send video messages, at least not across all platforms and without incurring additional charges from carriers. Except Windows Phone. Apparently implementing the feature into the Skype client for Windows Phone wasn’t a top priority for this product launch.

Nowadays he gets more excited about photography, cars, game consoles, and faster internet connections. He's sort of an Apple fan, but will take any opportunity to remind you about his Windows-powered home theatre PC and desire to own a vanilla Android tablet.   Currently uses: Apple 13-inch Macbook Pro with Retina Display, Apple iPhone 5, Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000, Audiofly AF78 Earphones, Xbox 360, Nikon D50.
