Cute – you can now send a video message via Skype (if you are in the UK or US)

Skype is very useful for lots of things and now there’s another feature that UK and us users will be able to check out – video messaging.

It is as it sounds with users able to record a video message that they can then send to another Skype contact. They can access the service via the Conversations tab.

You’ll be able to send up to 20 video messages to begin with, after that you will have to subscribe, though we have no news from Skype yer as to how much that will cost.

Microsoft, which owns Skype, is to also merge the service with its own Windows Instant Messenger. On April 8th, Messenger users will receive updates that will upgrade them into Skype clients.

If you are an Android, iOS, or Mac user who has got the most recent software update then you can use it. Skype users on Windows will receive video messages as a link, not a video clip.
