Skype on Outlook.com now available worldwide

Worldwide availability of Skype for Outlook.com was announced Tuesday. Now you can easily connect with your Skype friends right from your Outlook.com inbox, going from chat or email to a video call with just one click.

Last year, a preview version of Skype for Outlook.com was released in some markets. The version available Tuesday also supports HD video calling for PC users. With the new version – be sure to download the plugin – fixes have also been made for an issue some users experienced of calls continuing to ring after pickup.

The latest version of the plugin also has Mac support for Safari.
