Many of us use our gmail account and use it for sending emails, chatting with friends, talking (audio and video calls) with friends using the gtalk client. Such a audio video calling feature was lacking in the Microsoft email client ( It is a free personal email service from Microsoft and is quite widely used. Infact in just six months after its launch, it attracted 60 million new users.

Microsoft in an attempt to match the Google support and bring the audio/video calling support has coupled Skype with This is basically a preview version of Skype currently available for United Kingdom and will be made available in the United States and Germany in the coming weeks.
