Outlook.com recently celebrated its one year anniversary. They did so by giving away free SkyDrive storage and Skype credit to early adopters of the platform. The team at Outlook.com hasn’t slowed down since launching over a year ago. Continual updates to the platform have made it a favorite among many users. The latest feature is also news worthy and worth highlighting – Skype is now inside Outlook.com for a select number of markets.
If you find yourself in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Brazil, France, or Canada you can use Skype inside Outlook.com. This latest addition to the Outlook experience was announced a few months back, but only as a preview (beta). Now it’s rolling out to users in the markets listed above.
Want to try out Skype in the browser? You’ll want to install the plugin and follow the instructions to get started. Don't forget to be in one those countries listed above to try it out. We're sure it'll roll out to other regions in the near future.
We look forward to using Skype in the browser with Outlook.com when we’re not on our regular PCs.
