Skype has unveiled a new video messaging feature that takes a page from 1986′s hit sci-fi flick 2001: A Space Odyssey. Just like David Bowman in the movie, users will now be able to send and receive video messages for free. The feature is available on all platforms, so it doesn’t matter if you’re using Skype on your laptop or on your iOS or Android mobile device.
It’s probably one feature you’ve always wanted, but never really knew you needed until Skype rolled it out. It’ll definitely come in handy when you want to leave contacts a message that you can’t really articulate properly or express fully using mere text alone.
