Skype for Web Rolls out in New Beta Version for US and UK Users
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Have you ever been to an internet café or wanted to Skype a friend or family member from a shared computer? It is really frustrating when you try to use it and you see they don’t have Skype installed, isn’t it? Well, Skype just made things simple for you.
Whether you have a Mac or Windows PC, or even a (compatible) mobile phone with internet access, you can now head on over to Skype for Web. I did mention compatible previously because I tried to sign into the web platform on my Windows Phone handset, to which I was redirected to a page telling me that my device is still not compatible with the web service.
Even so, you can grab any laptop or PC and sign in to view your conversations and get access to IM. On some platforms, the service even provides calls and video calls, though the feature may still be a bit buggy. But hey, that’s why you have “beta” in the service’s name, isn’t it?
Still, Skype really did a good job on providing a way to sign onto its service with just a web browser and even get the full Skype experience on some compatible hardware. You can head on over to Skype’s website to try it out. Also, let us know what you think about Skype’s new initiative!
