The next generation of Skype from Microsoft gives you better ways to chat, call, and plan fun things to do with the people in your life every day. Microsoft acquired Skype in May 2011 to be included in their broader portfolio. The acquisition increased the accessibility of real-time video and voice communications, bringing benefits to both consumers and enterprise users and generating significant new business and revenue opportunities. The combination extended Skype’s world-class brand and the reach of its networked platform, enhancing Microsoft’s existing portfolio of real-time communications products and services.
