Skype began experimenting with its Video Messaging service back in February of this year for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. Today, the feature leaves beta and is free to use. Previously, Skype was charging $4.99 per month to use the feature. The first 20 video messages would be free before users had to pony up to continue using the service. Thankfully, the service has been released for free to all users. Strangely, Windows Phone users are left out, even though Microsoft owns Skype.
To use the service, you simply have to tap the “video message” button in the Skype app to bring up the video interface. Tap on the record button to begin recording your message. Messages can be up to three minutes long and can be previewed before sending it off.
