Now Skype users can send money to each other via PayPal

PayPal's 'Send Money' feature lands on Skype

Those sending money to friends or family will need to download the latest version of the Skype iOS or Android app, though the person receiving it can be using any version.

Bitcoin Eyes Highs as Fork Approaches
Bitcoin lacks an effective governance model to resolve contentious issues, and this is clearly deterring technological progress. Last week, the group behind Bitcoin Cash (BCC) said , "On August 1st, 2017, We the People will breathe new life into Bitcoin ".

For sending money over Skype, the users must need to link their SKype and PayPal accounts together. Skype does not want to be left behind in the race, which is why it has forged a partnership with PayPal to give more reasons to the users to start using the app for other features than just video calling. After that, you'll have to log in using PayPal and once you send the money it'll even show up in your conversation. To recall, Skype has also redesigned its app for Android and iOS, bringing the interface closer to the popular apps like Facebook Messenger and Snapchat. "PayPal has a Slack bot that lets you transfer funds through chat and you can Venmo money through iMessage". The first time you try to use this new feature, you'll be asked to confirm your location. That spring, Skype introduced a feature on desktop that allowed its users to send each other money via PayPal, as part of eBay's larger plan to integrate its various services.

Here's the full list: the United States, the UK, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain.

This is not the first time Skype has offered peer-to-peer payments powered by PayPal in its app, though you'll be dating yourself a bit if you remember when such an integration was announced before!
