Microsoft Putting A Social Media Spin On Skype

It seems that Microsoft wants to make Skype a whole lot more relevant to those who use social media a lot. Here’s some details from a press release from the folks in Redmond:

Rebuilt from the ground up, the new Skype vastly improves the ways you can connect with your favorite people and, of course, chatting is front and center. We’ve made group chats more lively, expressive, and—most importantly—personalized, so you can chat the way you want. With the new Skype, you’ll have countless ways to share life’s moments together, every day. Wherever life takes you, Skype allows you to seamlessly create, play, share, and do more with the people you care about most.

How are they going to do that? Here’s a video that shows the new Skype in action:

The newest update of Skype will become available to Android users over the next few months. Support for iOS is coming sometime in July. Desktop support for both PC and Mac will become available to users sometime this summer.
