Microsoft and PayPal are teaming up to introduce a new Send Money feature in the modern Skype on mobile devices. Skype on Android and iPhone now lets you send money to anyone on Skype with the new PayPal add-on for the service.
Sending money using the new Skype is pretty easy: all you have to do is to go to the Find tab in a conversation, select Send Money, fill out the location information, the amount you want to send, and the currency you want to use. After that, you’ll have to log in using PayPal and once you send the money it’ll even show up in your conversation.
Microsoft and PayPal are initially launching the new Send Money feature in 22 countries, including the United States, Canada, UK (Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man), Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain.
You can get to try out Send Money in the latest update for Skype on Android here, and on iOS here. Microsoft is yet to introduce the modern Skype on Windows 10, and the Send Money feature from PayPal should be available there once the new experience is available for Windows 10 devices.
