Skype has rolled out its new video messaging service, originally introduced as a beta back in February, to all users. Previously, Skype users could only use 20 messages per month without subscribing to the more expensive Skype Premium plan. Now, all users can send unlimited free video messages.
Video messaging is now available to all Skype users. You can send and receive as many video messages as you want – completely free of charge. Video messages can be received and viewed on any platform or device running Skype.
Skype Video Messaging adds another great way to keep in touch with friends and family during life’s most meaningful moments. Send a video message to your friends and family today—it’s easy. You can capture a fleeting memory, create a heartfelt reminder or simply tell a friend or family member "wish you were here" even when they aren’t online.

Skype for Mac has ads? Mine doesn't, and neither has any version of it I've ever used.
It's junk, but its pretty much one of the only viable options for a lot of people.
Since Skype has been bought my Microsoft, it became a real nightmare... from UI to features, to even restrictions (change of protocol, ads for free account and no more screen sharing for free account).
I currently seeking to switch to something else because I'm getting really tired of Skype.
There is ad on my windows machine but not my mac. funny how these things happen.
ahem... Skype for iOS and Mac?
I see the point of it every day as I chat with friends all over the world in a big conference call. We are a group who stayed in touch after the Skypecasts were discontinued in 2008.
I HAVE tried just about every other VOIP solution out there, and Skype always provides the best audio quality of any. Tango... Oovoo, Viber, you name it. Facetime is superior audio quality to Skype, but is one to one only.
I use my Windows machine for Skype, as I like the UI better.
I have seen ads in Skype, but there is an option in the program settings to turn them off. At least on the Windows version there is.
