Skype plans to launch video messaging feature

Unlimited video messaging will only be offered to Skype Premium service users

By CBR Staff Writer

Internet communication platform Skype is all set to launch the new video-messaging feature that would allow its users to send short, pre-recorded messages to other Skype users.

Skype revealed in its updated terms that unlimited video messaging will only be offered to Skype Premium service users.

The platform’s terms of service interpret: "If you are a Skype Premium subscriber you can … send and receive an unlimited number of Video Messages and any Video Messages you send and/or receive shall have no expiry date."

The service will be extended to non-premium users and they will also be allowed to send video messages, but with limited messages.

"As a non-Skype Premium subscriber any Video Message you send or receive will expire within 90 days, except for Video Messages received from a Skype Premium subscriber or where you upgrade to a Skype Premium subscription before the 90 day expiry period ends, and in either case the Video Message shall cease to have an expiry date," the Skype’s text reads.
