Skype Video Messaging is now a full-fledged feature
The entire process is pretty straight-forward; just tap the ‘Video Message’ button, followed by the record icon to begin a new message. Recordings can be up to three minutes in length and also previewed before it’s sent to the desired recipients. Skype users can also delete and re-record Video Messages at any time, which is particularly useful when contacting someone relatively important.
Once the user is happy with their message, it’s just a matter of clicking the envelope icon and waiting for a response. Job done.Skype launched Video Messages as a preview build back in February. At the time, however, it was only available for its Android, iPhone and Mac applications. Microsoft then brought the feature across to its Windows incarnations two months later, before updating it in June with improved stability and notification options.
