Today marks an event of utmost importance in history. Microsoft is joining Skype with Outlook.com thereby making communication a cinch. According to official Skype Blog, now all conversations can take place under one roof. The Skype/Outlook.com experience is going to be made available in the United Kingdom. Within the next few weeks it will spread to USA and Germany. The fun-filled features of audio and video calls will make using email even more exciting and tantalizing.
The good news is that now instead of writing, speech will take precedence. This means less typing and more talking, as the motto goes. Outlook.com is a no-cost email service lent to online users by Microsoft. By introducing Skype on this platform, Microsoft has really boosted confidence in its utilization. Outlook.com is employed for everyday tasks by at least 60 million users. That makes it the most frequently used email service in history. Let’s face it. Text is a limited and vicarious method of contact. Speech is more natural and common. It has served us for 99% of our history on this planet. Thus when you use language in its original form instead of transferring it on the screen via a keyboard it makes for a human face-to-face experience.
Marshall McLuhan spoke of the medium being the message. With Skype Outlook.com you can choose the medium at leisure. There is even an instant messaging service (IM) that completely ends the communication gap. There is a methodology by which you can get Skype in your Inbox. Finally you can get in touch with others and be prompted when others want to contact you through the Outlook.com Inbox. The Skype Preview will allow you to say all you want on Facebook and Twitter as well.
Using this email service which shows extreme growth, you can contact your loved ones and those close to your heart. This is a clear example of technology coming to the succor of man when he least expects it. It is a miracle of the electronic crafts and a harbinger of the game plan of the future.
