Skype video messaging now free and unlimited for all iOS users
On June 28, 2013
The official Skype apps for iPhone and iPad received updates that now bring unlimited video messaging free of charge, among other much welcome improvements like call stability and photo sharing. The previous monthly cost of Skype Premium subscription was $4.99.
Earlier this month Skype released the new video messaging feature to iOS, but the maximum free video messages that could be sent by each user at the time was 20. Past that limit, only a Skype Premium subscription could allow them to send more and this came at a cost of $4.99 a month. The newest update means this will no longer be necessary. Video messaging now comes free and unlimited for all iOS users.
The updates also come with other improvements that include more reliable photo sharing, improvements in stability of audio and video calls on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPad, enhanced video messaging accessibility, as well as general fixes and tweaks.
