Skype officially adds video messaging feature to its service

Last December, a change in Skype’s terms of service hinted that a new video messaging feature was going to be introduced soon. Now, it looks like the feature has been officially rolled out to the apps on Android and iOS.

If you’re eager to give it a try, don’t get too disappointed to learn that it may not be available in your region yet, because only folks in the U.S., UK, and several other countries — that have yet to be fully revealed — can start sending those video messages through Skype – at least for now.

Once you got the update, you’ll be able to send up to three minutes of video to your contacts. It’s reported that premium users will get to send an unlimited number of videos, which won’t be the case for regular Skype users. Another incentive for premium users is that their videos will never be deleted from the server.
