Skype will begin rolling out video messaging today to its iOS, Android, and Mac apps in the United States, United Kingdom, and a few other countries, a company representative confirmed to VentureBeat this morning. Changes to the chat service's terms of service in December hinted that video messaging was coming soon.


With the new update, users will be able to leave video messages for friends who don't answer when you try to call them on video chat. Video messages will be able to be up to three minutes long.  It's reported that premium users will get to send an unlimited number of videos, which won't be the case for regular Skype users. Another incentive for premium users is that their videos will never be deleted from the server.

Microsoft today pushed out an update to the Android version of its mobile Skype app. The change notes indicate the app has been rewritten in order to make "aggressive battery savings."


Microsoft says that the app can be left running in the background all day with no noticeable impact on battery life, but it had to disable push notifications for group chats in order to realize those efficiency gains. Users can elect to turn the group chat push notifications back on, though their impact on battery life is not clear.
