Microsoft's video messaging app, Skype Qik, picks up an update with improved sharing feature

Skype Qik is a video messaging service by the folks at Microsoft — acquired by Skype back in 2011. If you happen to be a regular user of the video messaging service, you be glad to find out that Skype has updated the app, bumping it to version 1.4. The latest version introduces improved sharing capabilities, allowing users to share the recorded clips to their favorite apps or social networks from within the app, without first saving it to the camera roll.

Skype says,

“Select one of your videos and tap on the ^ menu and now you’ll see a share menu. This uses your phone’s built in share option to send your video to whatever apps and accounts are registered for sharing video on your phone. You aren’t limited to what we choose for you: you’re free to share to any video platform YOU choose on your phone.”

As always, Microsoft has once again neglected its own operating system, the update is available on both iOS and Android at the moment. The company said they are “working hard” to create a totally new Windows Phone version which will release in the coming months.
