Skype have got good news to share! Skype and Messenger are coming together. Millions of Messenger users will be able to reach their Messenger friends on Skype. By updating to Skype, Messenger users can instant message and video call their Messenger friends.
This effort started with the release of Skype 6.0 for Mac and Windows a few weeks ago, which allows us to sign into Skype using a Microsoft account. Now Messenger users just need to update to the latest version of Skype, sign in using a Microsoft account, and their Messenger contacts will be there.
Once we update to Skype, here are some of the other great features Messenger users can expect:
• Broader device support for all platforms, including iPad and Android tablets
• Instant messaging, video calling, and calling landlines and mobiles all in one place
• Sharing screens
• Video calling on mobile phones
• Video calling with Facebook friends
• Group video calling
Here is a quick look at what we, as a Messenger user, can do to talk to our Messenger contacts on Skype:
On the sign in screen, select the option to sign in with your Microsoft account. We will be asked if we are already using Skype or are a new user.
If you use Skype and Messenger already, you can merge your Skype and Messenger account into your Microsoft account.
When you complete the installation process you will be welcomed into Skype with your buddy list already synced into your Skype contact list.
And you can start instant messaging right away!
