Skype has gained a great deal of success over the internet since its inception. It has recently fashioned its product line.
In company’s own words, “We opened up SkypeKit to accelerate Skype’s presence in the consumer electronics industry. While the response from developers was overwhelmingly positive, there were still calls for SkypeKit to allow for the development of desktop applications with integrated Skype functionality.”
The company further said “We have heard your feedback and are pleased to announce that, with today’s release of the Developer Preview of SkypeKit 4.02, we are now beginning to extend our developer initiative to include desktop applications. To this end, we are now offering not one, but two ways for partners to integrate Skype into their Windows, Mac and Linux desktop applications:
- SkypeKit for Desktop, which is intended to add native Skype functionality directly into partner applications
- Skype Desktop API, previously known as the Skype API or Public API, which allows developers to extend the functionality of Skype for Windows, Skype for Mac and Skype for Linux”
Skype has also officially announced its App Directory that had a soft launched back in August. Skype has renewed its both consumer apps and business apps that have been built of its APIs into groups by genre like call recording, video, desktop sharing etc.
