Skype for Web Beta is now open to all

Skype logoLast year Skype announced a new feature called Skype for Web. As the name suggests, this is basically a web version of Skype that will allow users to make calls and send and receive their messages to their contacts via a web interface. This might come in handy in moments when you need to access Skype, but don’t have the app or software installed on your mobile device or computer.

A couple of months ago, the private beta for the service was launched and the good news is that if you’ve been itching to try out the feature but could not get an invite to the closed beta, you’re in luck as Skype has announced that they are now opening up the beta to everyone, so if you want to take Skype for Web for a spin, you can do so by heading on to its website.

We should note that as it stands, the open beta is only available for those living in the US and the UK. If you’re not from either of these two countries, sorry to disappoint but hopefully Skype will eventually open up the beta to other countries soon, although Skype has not offered any dates for if and when that might happen.

To use the feature, all you’d need to do is load the website and log in with your Skype credentials. If you’re new to Skype, that won’t be an issue as you can just sign up for an account there and then and be able to start using the feature straightaway.
