Skype for Outlook.com- Make calls from your e-mail

Skype-video-chatSometimes, some messages, some thoughts, some expressions can’t be clearly conveyed in writing. Every so often, we all get into a situation where it is easier to explain things verbally. At times making that quick call can be sufficient than writing a long e-mail. And if you use Outlook.com, you must have been in a situation when you just thought, if you could explain everything out loud rather than writing. To make things easy for you, lately, Microsoft integrated its one of the most popular software Skype with Outlook.com. Yes, the recently released Outlook.com will now support Skype video and audio calling.

According to Microsoft’s product director of marketing for Skype, Simon Longbottom said “With Skype for Outlook.com, you can choose the right medium for your message, whether it is an email, call, video call or instant message (IM) – you can connect with your Skype and Messenger friends all in the same place,”.

Starting today, Microsoft is launching this service initially as a preview in the UK before rolling out to the US and Germany in the weeks ahead. And gradually on the basis of initial feedback, audio and video calling powered by Skype will be available in every Outlook.com inbox.

So how you can integrate?

Before linking up your Outlook.com and Skype accounts, you will be required to install a browser plug-in for Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Google Chrome. When your accounts are integrated, you will be able to see Skype call buttons whenever you bring your cursor over a contact in an instant message or e-mail thread. To begin calling, simply click on it to call. You will get a window pop-up for Skype conversations.

That’s it. Simply by integrating Skype in Outlook.com, you can talk nonstop, continuously, for as much time as you want.
