Microsoft has announced that it is releasing a new version of Skype and this new version lets you send files to your friends when they are offline.
When your friend you have sent the file too in Skype logs in, they can then download the file. Skype has also increased the file size doe documents and video to 300MB.
Over the last few weeks we’ve tested a number of different file size limits for file sharing. Based on the results of these tests, we are setting a limit of 300MB per file as this accommodates almost all the file sizes shared over Skype, and has been working well for our millions of users since it started rolling out several weeks ago. For those of you who want to send files larger than 300MB, OneDrive is an excellent option to share photos, videos and documents with your contacts, and it offers additional benefits of up to 5GB of free storage, local sync, and collaboration via the Office apps. We hope that you find the reliability improvements we’ve outlined above improve Skype file sharing overall.
