Hands-on with Skype's new video-messaging service

Ian Paul | June 18, 2013
Skype announced Monday that its video-messaging service, which allows users to send a video of three minutes or less to their Skype contacts, is now out of beta and free to all users.

Even with those options, the world's largest social network is hardly awash in video messages.

The Skype version is currently buried behind more frequently used options such as voice and video calling, as well as instant messaging, so anyone that wants to use this feature will have to seek it out.

Perhaps one day leaving video messages will become a natural extension of Skype's popular video-calling feature.

For now, Skype's new feature will probably end up like Facebook's, an option that is not popular, but available for the small number of users who want it.
