PC Software

If you used Messenger, you have probably Migrated to Skype by now.

Well there is some great news regarding Skype and Outlook

Its still early days yet, but it looks like Outlook will have Skype integrated into it via a small plug-in 🙂

Under the heading “Type Less. Talk More.” Microsoft has announced that users will be able to make Skype calls directly from their Outlook.com mailbox. This early “Preview” version of Skype for Outlook.com will begin to be rolled out in the UK today followed by the USA and Germany in the coming weeks. Redmond intends Skype audio and video calling to be available to “every” outlook.com mailbox in the few months thereafter.

If you use Outlook.com you will probably know that it already integrates with Messenger and Facebook text messaging services. While you have the email page open in your browser it can be quick and convenient to send simple messages via these services from there. Skype integration could bring a lot more messaging functionality with its audio and video capabilities.

Microsoft has thoughtfully composed an advert showing why you might want Skype integration in your webmail inbox.

I started on computers back in the days of the Sinclair ZX81 and Spectrum, back when people were coming to terms with how great their new digital watch was. Even though I worked in DIY Shops, Fancy Goods, the building trade, DJ'ing etc, my main interest and passion was always in coding, graphics and games. I decided to take the plunge into computer shops in the mid 90's and in 2003 set up my own computer business. I have a simple work ethic which is I prefer to make a little money often, rather than charging a fortune and losing customers. This has proven to work for me and my customers. In all the years I have traded I have never advertised and yet each week, I get new customers through recommendations - there is no higher praise :)
