Skype launched a new Video Message feature onto the platform yesterday, however Microsoft have today confirmed that the feature will only be available on iOS, Android and Mac as part of a beta so far, leaving Windows without the update until April.

The new feature will allow users to record and send visual voicemail messages up to three-minutes in length, from their phone, tablet or computer, however it will not be available on Windows Phone 8, Windows RT and Windows 8 until April, which is quite weird considering Microsoft paid quite a bit of dollar for Skype.

The news comes from CITEworld who confirmed the news in a report earlier today, where a Skype spokesperson told the site, “We ask you to be patient with us as we fine-tune the product ahead of its official launch.”
