Microsoft is opening up access to its Skype for Web beta to everyone in the United States and UK today, making it easier to connect to the audio and video calling service. You won’t be able to receive calls this way without being logged into Skype’s website, but if you’re someone who uses the smartphone apps more frequently than their desktop counterparts, this could prove a convenient option.
