Skype video messaging

Macs and iGadgets users can now send video messages via Skype

In December, Microsoft implemented an interesting feature in Skype for iOS and Mac which remained disabled until recently. Now, without fanfare, the company has started testing it, freeing some users the ability to send video messages to contacts who are offline.

In iGadgets, just touch the contact and the option “Message with Video” will appear. The messages have a maximum of three minutes and the user can also add a title and description.

On Macs [baixe o app aqui], the process is very similar: choose the contact, right click on it (or use the green arrow to open the menu) and choose the option “Send Video Message…”.

An important detail: after sending a message, a warning appeared saying that I have 19 free messages left. For an unlimited number of submissions, you must have an account premium (approximately R $ 10 per month).

Incredible as it may seem, the novelty even arrived first for Mac users and iGadgets. According to the The Verge, Microsoft plans to release the feature for Windows by the end of April.
