#Skype4C: A Quick Look at #Skype Web Audio/Video Plugin

Skype has recently noted that Skype for Web will soon be available www.skype.com and to “look out for access to Skype for Web on Skype.com in the coming weeks”.

At this time the Skype for Web is not available at Skype.com but in the mean time you can take a look at the existing Skype for Outlook.com plugin available in OneDrive.com immediately. (NOTE: The existing Skype web plugin on OneDrive.com may have nothing to do with the plugin used in the Skype for Web app.)

To see the Skype plug being used on Onedrive, Login to OneDrive.com and click on People, and find a Skype user that is online.

There is also an Instant Message panel by pressing the IM button.

The conversation panel disappears after the call ends in the OneDrive | People web app, but we still don’t know how this will work in the Skype for Web app.

That’s all for now. We’ll keep looking for Skype for Web on www.skype.com.
