As announced earlier this year, Skype is now officially part of Microsoft. The video chatting service will continue to work across all platforms, including Macs, but we’re sure that Microsoft has bigger (enterprise-y) plans for the service. Hopefully Skype’s new owners won’t fall victim to greed, since it’s still the best cross platform video chatting services—especially since Apple refuses to open up the FaceTime platform as promised.
Microsoft is committed to the ubiquity of the Skype experience – communication across every device and every platform will remain a primary focus. And we’ve only scratched the surface. We’re at the starting line of integrating world-class talent, innovative technologies and products. By bringing together the best of Microsoft and the best of Skype, we’ll deliver amazing new experiences for consumers and business around the world.
