Skype has been testing this in beta for some time now, but it looks like the company is ready to make it official; Skype today has officially launched a free video messaging service on Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android, allowing Skype users to send short, pre-recorded video clips to each other free of charge. Though Skype limited the amount of videos a user could send during the beta period, Skype now allows for unlimited videos to be sent entirely free of charge, whether you’re a Skype Premium user or a basic user.

Most of the official Skype clients have been upgraded to allow this new functionality, including Skype for Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android. Curiously enough, Skype – which is owned by Microsoft – does not currently offer a version of their Windows Phone client that includes this functionality. In a world where Microsoft has been pushing their new products so heavy handedly, it’s strange to see the company offer a subpar experience on their own platforms when compared to what they offer on the competition’s – and let’s face it, Windows Phone needs all the help it can get.

Skype has uploaded a new how-to video on their official YouTube page, which has been embedded below.
