Skype is already a great way to keep in touch with distant loved ones, offering a free way to converse face-to-face over Wi-Fi. Of course, with busy schedules and time differences, we rarely manage to time it so we're online at the same time as our foreign friends. Which is why we're psyched that Skype has launched a free video messaging service, allowing you to record a clip for your buddy to enjoy the next time they log in.
The new video messaging service is available right now on the standard Windows and Mac desktop versions, as well as the iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry apps. Recorded messages will be viewable on any supported device, and you can record as many as you like free of charge.
