Skype for Web Beta is here, allows users to make calls and messages

Skype for Web is here, but in beta form, allows users to make calls and messages

Rejoice Skype lovers, soon you’ll be able to login to the instant messaging service from the web and get in touch with your friends and family. Microsoft has announced Skype for Web, but it’s currently in beta stages so it’s not available for every user at the moment. Skype for Web Beta is already available for selected new and existing users, and will roll out publicly in the coming months. The service will work in most major browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome. 

All you have to do is sign in with your login credentials on Skype.com and look out for the invite — they are already rolling out to users. Once signed in, you’ll be able to make calls and send messages to your contacts from your browser. However, before you make your first call, you have install a plug-in to make it work, but the software giant is working on to make sure it can find a workaround, and make it more convenient.

This will definitely make things a lot easier, and will help out users in a variety of ways. Login to your Skype account, and let us know if you received an invite for Skype for Web.
