Although you should be familiar with Skype come Xbox One when it is released on November 22nd this year, but Windows Phone 8 users can ‘finally’ Skype as of now. The video and chat messaging service on Windows Phone 8 has had a new update that introduces video calls and video messages.

Quoted from the Skype Team:

Windows Phone 8 users can record and share a personal video message, which the chosen recipient can play as soon as they sign into Skype. This allows users to capture and share a fleeting memory, create a heartfelt reminder or simply tell a friend or family member “wish you were here” – even when their friends and loved ones are not available. Once your contact has received a video message from you, they can reply back with a video right away.

To grab the updated Skype App on the Windows Phone store just follow this direct link:

The new update also has a few bug fixes, so even if you don’t fancy a video call it still has a number of improvements to the application.
