Skype Poised to Roll Out Video Messaging

skypeChanges to Skype’s terms of use indicate that the messaging and VoIP client will soon feature video messaging.

Users will apparently be able to record and send short video messages to other Skype users. Currently, video only works in real-time conversations.

Premium subscribers, who pay $9.99 a month or $59.88 a year, will be able to send and receive an unlimited number of video messages. The messages will never expire. For non-premium users, messages will be limited and will expire after 90 days.

All messages must comply with copyright and other laws. Skype may ban users who send illegal video messages, according to the updated terms of use policy.

SocialTimes has put in a request for more information. We will update this post if we get a response.
