Posted on Feb 28 2012 - 8:58am by Editorial Staff

The web-calling giant Skype which three days back reached a new milestone mark with a staggering 32 million users mark added more glory to its wisdom by surpassing that mark after the Microsoft-owned service recorded 34 million users online concurrently at peak on Monday. Skype’s number is impressive as it represents real-time usage.

In a post on the Skype blog, Jennifer Caukin, social media director and blogger-in-chief speculates what might have seen last week’s record surpassed so quickly, It’s a quick jump and speaks to the volume of people who rely on Skype everyday around the world to stay in touch. Perhaps it’s driven by all the buzz of people talking about the Oscars, NASCAR Daytona 500, or maybe it can be attributed to our announcement today at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona for our new Skype for Windows Phone Beta app.

Skype at Mobile World Congress yesterday also unveiled Skype for Windows Phone Beta app, making Skype available on almost all of the leading mobile smartphone operating systems – the gold version of the app will be out by April, but from today you can download the beta version for the test drive.
