As more and more people use Chromebook, Some are going to want to use Skype . I will update this thread as needed.
Skype is often considered a voice-and-video-calling application, but it’s more than that. Many people just use Skype for text chatting, especially after it absorbed the old Windows Live Messenger (aka MSN Messenger.)
You can connect to Skype and send text messages with your contacts from Outlook.com. Just log in to your account and use the built-in chat feature in Outlook.com, which connects to Skype. This hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves — Outlook.com’s chat feature is basically just a web version of Skype.
