Skype for web was launched last year, allowing you to use Skype on any computer directly through browser. Since then, users haven’t been tied down to using one machine or having to download the Skype app. Today, the company is launching some other interesting features.

1. Mobile And Landline Calling

With a very low rate, users can now call landlines and mobiles with your Skype credit or Skype subscription.

2. Watch YouTube Videos On Skype

The way that URLs appear on Skype for Web has been improved and now include an image from the specific website. If a YouTube video link is posted on Skype for Web you can just watch it there, without ever leaving your conversation.


3. Add People Non-Skype Users To The Conversation

Users can create a chat with anyone simply by pressing the “+New” button and and then “Share conversation.” This feature was only available on Skype for Window up until now, giving you a URL to share with anyone you want to take part in the conversation. They don’t need to be Skype users and you do not need to know this beforehand.
