Skype Video Messages Launches For iPhone


Want to send your friends, family or loved ones a quick video message? Well now you can with ease and efficiency thanks to the new Skype Video Messaging service.

The Verge has a detailed rundown of the new service which enables users to record a three minute message from the front or back of an iPhone and send it via the Skype chat box.

If you think this is all fine and dandy and a great way to video message on the cheap, think again. Microsoft has confirmed that the Skype Video Messaging service will allow new users up to 20 free video messages and then after the service will become premium and require a $4.99 access fee.

Still, it’s a pretty cool feature and the 20 free messages is a great way to give the new service a test run.
