Skype for Outlook.com

Skype has been released for Outlook.com – however, it requires a non-standard web plugin. Hopefully, Skype will produce either this plugin or a standard Skype client for Chrome OS.

Re: ChromeBook

IM+ does not allow video/voice option in skype mode.  Dont bother with all the "fixes" people suggest either.  I just spent two hours following all the suggestions and nothing works.  just wiped my chromebook, Taking it back to the store tomorrow.  Chromebook is definitely a superior product for web browsing and surfing, but when I deploy to Iraq/Afghanistan/Syria/North Africa/Asia or wherever else the U.S. gov't decides to send me, I can't take the chance Microsoft (owner of Skype) is going to change something and I no longer have contact with my family.  Skype will be the sole source of communication in those environments.  

 

Skype/Microsoft Devs: you are seriously pissing off a lot of people.  If I could convince the rest of my family to get chromebooks and could teach my 80 yearold grandfather and my mother-in-laws friends a completely new system, I would drop MS in a heart beat!!
