Microsoft has released an updated version of the Skype for Google extension Chrome, which adds video calling integration to Gmail, Outlook, and Twitter.
The browser extension is already available from the Google Chrome web store. This extension has allowed you to share the sites you visit with your Skye contacts.
Today's Skype update for Google Chrome improves the functionality of the extension.
Microsoft's publication on Skye's official blog mentions all the changes. Changes include the ability to add Skye connection calls to messages, calendar events, or Twitter.
The extension currently supports Gmail, Outlook, and Twitter. You can add the "join my Skypré video call" link to emails post officey in Gmail, Outlook, Google Calendar or Outlook events.
To clarify that when we write Outlook, we are referring to Outlook.com, the web-based instant messaging service, and not Outlook, the desktop application.
It works in a similar way for Twitter, only you can add the link to your Twitter messages directly from the button you see in the above picture.
Chrome users who have installed the older version of the extension may have already received the update.
If you do not have it, you can download it from the Chrome Web Store.
Η επέκταση είναι επίσης διαθέσιμη και για τον Firefox, όμως η Microsoft δεν αναφέρει τίποτα για ενημερωμένη έκδοση του Firefox add-on στην ανακοίνωσή της.
