The corporate world revolves around email exchanges. This is the reason why Microsoft Outlook is such a popular email client – it’s functional and direct-to-the-point. Sometimes though, you need more than just written documentation, and a call is what gives your business its human touch and its sense of urgency. That’s why many toggle between Outlook and Skype during the course of the day.
The great news is that you can now communicate from one powerful platform. Skype recently launched version 6.1 for Windows Desktop with Outlook Integration. That means you can enjoy the technical advantages of Skype right in your Outlook dashboard.
Changes include integration of contacts from both platforms; you can now audio or video call your friends on Outlook who aren’t on Skype using your credits or subscription. You can also instant message Skype contacts directly from the email client.
Functionality has also improved – you now only need to clicks to add a contact. The account information area has also been updated for easier navigation and revision.
Skype for Outlook is available for Outlook versions 2010 or higher and is free to download.
You can kick the new Skype version a notch higher by recording and saving your video streams for later reference. SuperTinTin is a Skype video recorder that makes a great addition to your updated version, as you’ll be able to document your conversations, even if you’re streaming two video calls at once.
