Remarkable features of Skype

Skype for Web is now available to all users

Yesterday was announced that Skype for Web is no longer at the stage of closed beta, and it was moved on to a new stage — the open beta. Thus, restrictions no longer exist and people from around the world can test the service for Skype Web — for this, they need only a browser and an Internet connection.

However, it should be noted that for voice and video calls, you need to install a special plug-in for your browser, which later he himself will be automatically updated. Moreover, since this plugin is only available for operating systems Windows and Mac OS, only users of these operating systems can make voice and video calls.

With Skype for the Web, still it is impossible to send and receive files. If you try to send this file to the user (except for images), he will get the message "Receiving files is not supported by Skype for browser." However, the images are displayed and maybe soon Skype for the Web will be ready for a complete file sharing.

While many features are not available in Skype for Web, but the developers work hard to improve it and will add to it all the usual functions and features of Skype application.
