Since February, Skype has supported customers leaving video messages that contacts can view on their smartphone, tablet, or desktop. The beta period has ended and Skype Video Messages now supports Mac OS, Windows, and all major mobile platforms - except Windows Phone.

Skype Video Messages now supports recording video voicemails that can be accessed at the recipients' convenience. Video Messages allow users to communicate in situations when a video call is not available and sending a photo or email just won't do. Though it was originally intended to work as a premium subscription service, Skype has announced that messages can be sent at no cost.

Just as it did when Skype Video Messages debuted in February, Microsoft has not included support for its own Windows Phone. The Skype versions of Android, iPhone or iPad, and BlackBerry 10 can access the feature, but not those who use Windows Phone. Unlike the beta version, Windows desktop and Windows 8 Skype apps now enable the feature. Download links and instructions for how to send messages are available at the link below.
