Skype for Windows Phone 8 now offers video messaging

One of the biggest ironies in tech is definitely the relationship between Skype and Windows Phone. Both software services are owned by Microsoft, and yet it seems that Skype is more inclined to provide its new features to iOS and Android users before they bring the goods to Windows Phone customers. Yes, that doesn’t mean that Windows Phone users are left out in the cold about anything, but it is annoying to be last when users of the Microsoft OS shouldn’t be.

Starting today you can upgrade your Skype for Windows Phone app, and among the changes and improvements, you’ll now be able to use video messaging. This will allow you to share an unlimited amount of video messages between yourself and other users, in a similar fashion to how you can leave somebody a voice mail, or text message in other services. This service is free to everyone, even though it’s hard to predict of the concept will ever become as popular as other services that are already mainstream.

Do you video message on Skype? Is Skype for Windows Phone 8 a service you constantly use as well?
