Microsoft Sends First Invites for Skype for Web Beta



/ 3 years ago

Skype for web

A beta version of Skype for Web, a clientless iteration of Microsoft’s messaging service for use as a web application within your internet browser, has been released. Since all video call, voice call, and instant messaging functionality is available in-browser, there is no need to download and install the Skype client, though a plugin is required. A limited number of beta invites have been sent out to existing users, with Microsoft hoping to expand user access over the next few months.

Skype for Web beta is compatible with Internet Explorer 10, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox on PC, and Safari 6 and above on Mac, though Microsoft warns of excessive battery consumption on Apple systems and longer ring times for calls.
