Microsoft launches Skype Qik video messenger

Apps, Mobile phones, Skype

Remember Qik? The video streaming app has been reborn as a messaging service in the mould of WhatsApp. The difference? This time you have to communicate using video.


According to UberGizmo Skype Qik can record up to 42 seconds per message, and doesn’t need to process before sending. Apparently if the recipient doesn’t have the app installed they will receive a text message telling them how to get it.

The app is available now for iPhone, Android and, of course, Windows Phone.
