With the Spotify plugin, users will be able to send search for songs, albums and artists, find music to play on Spotify, and share brief previews of a particular song.
"The Skype Spotify Add-in makes it even easier to share a preview of your favorite songs with your friends and family," Microsoft explains. "We will be rolling this out gradually to all Skype Insiders in the United States on Skype (version 8). We will also be rolling it out to all Insiders around the world very soon."
