Microsoft's new Skype Qik video messaging app focuses on short duration videos. Skype has released a new messaging app that lets you send 42-second videos to friends.
Dubbed Skype Qik, the app is now available worldwide in 21 languages for Android, iPhone, as well as Windows Phone devices. According to Principal Program Manager Lead Dan Chastney, the app, which takes its name from the mobile live video streaming company Qik that Skype acquired for $100 million back in 2011, is aimed at a section of the market that is moving away from scheduled, one-to-one communications. Feature-wise, Skype Qik reminds us of a lot of other popular apps. For example, like Vine, the app lets you send short duration videos; you sign up for the service with your phone number, an approach already followed by Whatsapp and Viber; and every message lasts exactly 2 weeks, a nod to the ephemeral messaging system popularized by Snapchat.
