Skype adds video chat

Skype adds video chat

As reported on earlier this morning, Skype has released a beta version of its popular VoIP and instant-messaging software that includes video chat capabilities. Other instant-messaging services with VoIP, such as AOL's AIM and Microsoft's MSN Messenger service, already offer video chat but lack some of Skype's other popular features such as conference calling and secure messaging and VoIP calls. The Skype 2 beta also allows you to personalize your presence on the network with a "mood indicator," which lets you tell others whether you are happy, sad, listening to music, available, or busy.
