Voice Messaging Now Available in Skype on All Platforms

Skype finally gets updated with a much needed, long over-dued, and loved feature, Video Messaging. Now with this new feature, you can share any bit of your day with your friends on Skype without waiting for s/he being online, a perfect way sending your happy birthday messages, long-distance goodnight kisses, or anything that are better to be seen.

Video Messaging is now available in Skype on all platforms, including Windows, Windows Phone, Mac, iOS, Android, and even Blackberry. You will have to have the latest version of Skype installed or updated on your device in order to enjoy this new feature.

On Windows 8

In Skype Windows 8 app, simply select a friend that is offline, click or tap the + sign, and choose send video message option from the popup menu.

And once again, if you don’t see this option available on offline accounts, you haven’t updated to the latest version of Skype yet. You will need to update first before using this feature.
