Microsoft has added video messaging to the Skype app for iOS. In an update in December, under-the-hood improvements were made that were intended to support future feature launches. This morning, Skype added the ability to send video messages, each up to three minutes in length, to your Skype contacts.
Microsoft's Skype communications apps for iPhone and iPad have been updated to version 4.2. New features include the ability to chat with Messenger, Hotmail, and Outlook.com, and merge them all together into one, happy, mega-Microsoft account. If you're a first timer, you can now create an account from within the app.
