Office 365 users can use free Skype minutes to call more places

When Microsoft launched Office 365 Home Premium in late January, it also allowed the primary subscriber to have 60 free minutes on Skype to call landlines and mobile phones for a limited number of countries. The same offer was given to subscribers for Office 365 University.

Today, Microsoft announced on the official Office blog that those free 60 minutes of Skype calls can now be used to dial up landlines in 23 more countries around the world. This follows Microsoft's previous announcement of a new version of its OneNote Windows 8 app on Thursday and Microsoft says we can expect "... new updates and enhancements both big and small to the new Office in the future."

For the record, this is the newly updated and full list of countries that Office 365 Home Premium users can call with their 60 free Skype minutes:

Call to landlines and mobiles in: Canada, Guam, Hong Kong, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Thailand, United States, and China.

Call landlines in: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Chile, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Venezuela, Brazil, South Africa, Morocco, Turkey, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Paraguay, Bulgaria, Romania, Latvia, Lithuania, Indonesia-Jakarta, Slovenia, Malta, Andorra, Brunei, Iceland, and Guadeloupe.

Today is free, tomorrow there will be the Basic version of Skype for office, the pro version and the enterprise version

SkyDrive Pro and SkyDrive, I guess Skype and Skype Pro

Stupid Microsoft

What are you talking about? Skype has always been free to call from computer to computer. If you want to call a cell / home phone then you pay for obvious reasons. Nothing will ever change for that.

Skydrive "pro" doesn't add more features for you to use, it just increases the space.

Stop trolling every MS topic.
