Microsoft’s popular communication tool Skype can now be used from a web browser with the same capabilities. It allows text, video, chat as well as file sharing and the beta launch for the web based service has been launched in UK and US markets.
The access requires a plugin to be downloaded and Skype for web is expected to be launched across the world shortly. It can be accessed from skype.com or web.skype.com and works from all browsers including Chrome, Mozilla, Safari as well as IE. However, the feature is not available on Chromebooks.
The feature now loads all your communications in the browser window and also displays notifications which can be accessed even from a different browser.
