Skype, being the highly revolutionized free video call service, is still in use, but it is not discussed much in the realm of Snap Inc., Facebook, and Instagram Inc. Skype has got over 300 million active users, which makes it comparable to Twitter Inc. but Skype Messenger contains more beneficial features which are built on much newer technology, at least for the users who want to make calls just like they do use phone and video chats free of cost.
As the Skypes was released in 2003, the thought that people could connect through video call was a new thing, especially because the services was totally free. It was that time when long distance calls, especially those which are made outside the countries, were costly, and video call technology was not there in reach of most of the people. The creativity of this product was greater than eBay Inc. which purchased the company for more than $2.5 billion in 2005. This made it the father of the “unicorn” class.
The Microsoft has integrated with Skype to imply it for some of its business services. T has been incorporated into the software firm’s business server tool, especially, it also brought Skype in the video call technology business. This permits businesses to forgo much costly video conference mechanism. Perhaps, Microsoft thinks that this makes its business tool software more attractive for users. The evolution of Skype as a source for people to communicate, even without Microsoft business tool, prolongs. It has recently declared few of the new features.
Skype Messenger is working hard to create some novel ways to aid you in making connections with your family, friends, and fellows easy and comfortable. Keeping this thing in mind, the company is intended to expand the Skype extension for Google Chrome for enabling the Skype’s integration all across for everyday usage, more than being an online tool by including the stuff like calendars, emails, and even social media platforms. In the most recent version of Skype extension for Chrome, you can make and put the Skype call links with just a single click, within your emails, calendar items or tweets.
This update will come along with the already available Skype extension features, like the capability to connect directly by using the browser, share the web links and activate Skype with one click. Skype may have been the ignored in few areas in which it was one quite popular, but it is not completely gone.
