Enjoy using Skype on your PC, Xbox and phone? Microsoft is providing yet another way to keep in touch with friends and family by releasing a bunch of invites for the "Skype for Web" beta. It's a fully featured Skype experience but, instead it is powered by your favorite web browser.
Not only are basic text conversations supported, but both video and regular voice calls too. For the time being, the beta program appears to be open to those who have received invitations from Microsoft to try out Skype for Web. You may need to install the plug-in.
As you can see from the screenshots posted above, the web version of Skype has many of the same features as the apps that the company offers on nearly every platform. Basic chat and video chat is currently supported, along with regular voice calls.

The web-based version of Skype offers most of the same capabilities found in Microsoft's official app. That includes live video and text chat along with audio-only calling.
There's no word as to when we can expect to see Skype for Web released to the masses, but for now it's looking as though Microsoft will provide a solution to those who don't have access to one of many Skype apps available.
