Skype for Outook.com goes live in UK

Tuesday 30 April 2013 | 09:29 CET | News

Microsoft is launching a preview version of Skype for Microsoft’s free e-mail service, Outlook.com, in the UK ahead of its release in the US and Germany in the coming weeks and worldwide availability this summer. The Skype audio and video calling service is available directly in the Outlook.com inbox to allow users to choose the most appropriate medium for their message.

Clicking on the Skype audio or video call buttons in the IM conversation will launch the call. To start a call while reading an e-mail on Outlook.com, users move the mouse over their friend’s picture and click on the Skype audio or video call buttons that appear above the contact details.

Skype for Outlook.com requires users to download a plugin for the most recent versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox. They can then connect Skype to Outlook.com via their Microsoft account. Customers with an existing Skype account will be asked to link Skype and Outlook.com, which will merge both platforms’ contacts.
