Product News, Customer Stories and Updates from Skype



If you live in Japan, share your stories before February 29th and stand to win dinner vouchers for two at JPY 10,000 each for the Skype "Best Couple" or "Best Friendship"!

The month of February is a special month for deepening ties with your loved ones, revolving around love and friendship with both Valentine’s Day on February 14th and Friendship Day that we are celebrating today.

We would therefore love to hear your stories about how you’ve stayed in touch with long-distance boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives and best friends, using Skype. It’s heartwarming to hear how Skype helps many of you bridge the distance between loved ones no matter how far you are.

Please send us your Skype love and friendship stories (as well as any photos) today. Whether you have a story about how Skype helped you and your loved one and friends deal with job relocation or being separated because you went to different colleges across the country or any other long distance unique story, we want to hear how Skype brought you closer together.

Skype will choose the best two stories to receive an award (dinner voucher for two) of “Best Couple” or “Best Friendship”, and be featured in an upcoming blog. Winners will be invited to the Microsoft Skype office in Tokyo to receive their award, and participate in a photo session.

Additionally, 30 other participants will receive one-month “Skype Unlimited World subscriptions” which will enable them to make unlimited calls to landlines and landlines or mobiles in 40 countries worldwide.
