Skype Video Messages launches for iPhone & Android, No Love for Windows Phone

Microsoft-owned Skype updated their iPhone and Android apps today, bringing a new “Video Messaging” service which allows you to send pre-recorded video messages to your Skype contacts.


You’ll basically see a new “Send Video Message” option and the same Skype camera screen where you can record the message, review it, and hit send, or cancel. Video messages can be up to 3 minutes long, and you can send up to 20, after which Skype will as you to pay up to send more.

What’s ironic and frustrating about this, is that the new feature is now available on the Mac app, iOS and Android, but isnt available for Windows or Windows Phone either. Considering Skype is owned by Microsoft, this is a bit….. disappointing, yes? Even Microsoft don’t see Microsoft products as relevant. Sigh.

Anywho, if you have an Android or iOS device, you’ll find the update right over at the Google Play Store or App store respectively, as always. Doesnt seem to be available just yet though, but hopefully in a couple minutes.
