Skype for all: Microsoft lets users send direct links to chat with anyone via Skype


Microsoft has introduced a new option for skype which will allow users to send direct links to chat with anyone via skype. When users send their friends a link, once they accept it, they will be able to launch skype from the web and join the conversation. Additionally, if users have a Skype name and a Skype mobile app, they can share a conversation link from Skype for iPhone, iPad and Android just by clicking the link. As per skype, the new link sharing features should be live now within the United States and should be live throughout the rest of the world in a few weeks. Sharing a mobile conversation feature will be added soon. Skype has already added features, such as its universal translator, in a bid to lure users to the Skype app. It is also added conveniences to its Web apps, to entice users to adopt Office. If you use Outlook.com, for example, and receive a Word file, it will open in the Word Online app.
