Skype for Outlook public beta

Do you live in Outlook? Are you a Skype addict? If you answered “yes” to both questions, Peter Kalmstrom has the product for you! Last year Peter brought us the Outlook Skype application; this year, he was commissioned by Skype to expand the functionality and bring true Outlook and Skype integration.

“I have been commissioned by Skype to build an Outlook add-on that makes the most of both these powerful platforms. I am very happy with the results. The finished result will soon be published on the Skype website for free!”

Peter was gracious enough to provide me the opportunity to help in the private beta for the past month or so. I have to say, I was impressed with the application right off the bat. Aside from a few early version issues, the app runs fine for me although I have a limited number of contacts in Outlook. I’ll be adding plenty more as I migrate Contacts from my work computer to my home computer.
