Skype updates Qik for iOS and Android, adding much awaited sharing feature

Microsoft has remained committed to improving its messaging services over the years, and it is continuing that with a much awaited update to its group video messaging app called Qik, which was released a few months ago under the Skype brand for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.

Not too long ago the Redmond company added a very useful feature to the app, and now it just got better. If you have been using the app, you may have wondered about not having an easier way to show the videos you have created to others.

You can now share the clips created with Qik on your favorite social network from within the app, without having to save them to your camera roll first. The feature is available to iOS and Android at the moment, but the Skype team has promised to bring it to Windows Phone users very soon.

Select one of your videos and tap on the ^ menu and now you’ll see a share menu. This uses your phone’s built in share option to send your video to whatever apps and accounts are registered for sharing video on your phone. You aren’t limited to what we choose for you: you’re free to share to any video platform YOU choose on your phone.

And there's more:

We also snuck in a Valentine’s Day surprise, so be sure to check out in the app on the 14th and see how Qik can play cupid for you.

You can download the latest versions of Qik right now from the Windows Phone Store, Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
