Microsoft today announced that it will be rolling out a preview version of Skype for Outlook.com. The company begins the rolling process in the UK first, followed by the US and Germany in the coming weeks while it will be available in every Outlook.com inbox in the coming months time. The roll out means you can now enjoy Skype video and audio calls straight from your inbox. Explaining about the integrate process, Microsoft says:
Even with the best email service, sometimes text isn’t enough. We all face those situations where it’s just easier to jump on a call to talk something through. Sometimes that quick call can accomplish more than a long email reply. That’s why we are bringing Skype audio and video calling to your Outlook.com inbox. Now, with Skype for Outlook.com, you can choose the right medium for your message, whether it is an email, call, video call or instant message (IM) — you can connect with your Skype and Messenger friends all in the same place.
