Since we launched Skype on Outlook.com, we’ve been listening to your feedback, and heard loud and clear that starting chat sessions with friends wasn’t as easy as it could be. Today, we’re excited to announce the worldwide availability of improvements to Skype for Outlook.com that makes it easier for you to find and chat with friends on Skype.
New messaging features
- Participate in and create group chats. Add people to a conversation by clicking on the “+” in a conversation.
- Pick up conversations where they left off by opening your chat pane. Just click on the “:-)” on the upper right and your most recent conversations are listed.
With Skype for Outlook.com, you can easily connect with your Skype contacts right from your Outlook.com inbox, so you can go from chat or email to a video call with just one click. If you haven’t tried Skype for Outlook.com yet, getting started is easy. Just link your Skype account and download the plugin – we think you’ll really like being able to launch video calls and chats right from your browser.
We’re always looking to improve your experience on Skype for Outlook.com and we care about your feedback. We’d love to hear from you on the Skype Community with any questions or concerns. Also, you can always find us on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest updates and share your thoughts.
