Microsoft has today announced that the company is teaming up with VICE News – one of the largest news source.

Sterling Proffer, the General Manager at VICE News stated:
“Skype is enabling VICE News to continue to break down barriers, making it easier to gather and share truly global stories. Skype TX allows us to bring in a wide range of voices and faces into the conversation – which lets ideas, and not technology, dictate the story.”
VICE News has also posted a tutorial video showing how to send VICE News a Skype Video Message:
This partnership is indeed very interesting and it’ll be interesting to see if Microsoft teams up with other major news sources in the future.
