Skype for Web new features added

Last year Microsoft had brought web version of Skype which lets us get straight to our Skype conversations from any computer. Skype for Web is great whether we are using a shared computer that doesn’t have Skype downloaded, or just prefer using a web version instead of a downloaded app.


Here, we are listing some new features added to Skype


1. Call mobile phones and landlines directly from Skype with low rates:

Now we can save money on our phone calls to mobile phones and landlines. All we need is a little Skype credit or a subscription to start making affordable international calls from Skype. Once we have signed in to Skype for Web, simply click on the call phones tab, select destination, dial the number you’d like to call and then hit the call button.



2. Enjoy watching YouTube videos without leaving Skype


Now URLs show up in Skype for Web will also include an image from the webpage. Additionally, if someone posts a YouTube video link in Skype for Web, we’ll be able to watch it directly in Skype. We get all the same volume and full-screen controls as we have in YouTube, but we can't open a new browser window to watch the video—it’ll instantly play directly in Skype.


3. Add new people to a conversation, even if they’re not on Skype



One of the most exciting features recently launched to Skype for Windows desktop users is a new way to add people to a Skype chat.Now we can create a chat with anyone by pressing +New and then ‘Share conversation.’ We’ll then give you a unique conversation URL that you can share however you want. Best of all, we don’t even need to know if they already use Skype because they can join our conversation as a guest using Skype for Web.


4. Never miss a conversation


A new feature notifications is added to Skype for Web, so that we’ll never miss an important IM or call. As long as we’re signed into Skype for Web, we’ll receive notifications.
