Microsoft Edge To Support The Skype For Web Without Plugins

Maximize a YouTube video in Microsoft Edge the cool way.

Now, people who are using Skype on a web browser will be able to connect to their conversations faster than before on Skype for Web and Skype for Outlook.com.

Have you ever scheduled plans with a distant friend to connect via video conferencing technology only to realize you hadn’t yet installed the proper plug-ins or hadn’t upgraded to the latest version of a particular application?Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), since last year, has been working on the browser-based Skype version that is now available for the Insider with the latest Preview.We’re taking a step deeper into the advancement of technology, and Microsoft’s Edge teams up with Skype for browser support without the use of additional plugins.Here’s a cool feature in Microsoft Edge that you won’t find on Firefox or Chrome — the ability to maximize a YouTube video in Microsoft Edge while resizing the Edge browser!

“After first connecting you will be prompted to test your Xbox Live connection and will then be directed to use Internet Explorer to login to the network”, notes. System Update Errors: If you encounter an update error screen while downloading a system update and the console freezes, please wait 3 minutes before rebooting the console to ensure crash data is captured. The feature is included in the newest version of the Windows 10 Insider Preview, due to the new ObjectRTC API element that enables users to make voice or video calls in real-time.

As you can see in the image below, you can resize the Edge browser while maintaining a “full-screen” YouTube video that fills up the entire browser screen. At this point, Microsoft is pulling out all of the stops with the Xbox One in order to compete with their console rivals in Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Nintendo’s Wii U. ObjectRTC (ORTC), as well as its sister API, Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC), are in-development web standard APIs that enable real time streaming of data between web browsers.

According to the blog, the ORTC APIs enable the development of real-time audio and video communications applications on top of the Microsoft Edge browser, without the need to install any plugins. Keep in mind that Chrome, Firefox and Safari are all WebRTC-compatible, but it’s still vague as if and when Skype will allow a plug-in-less experience for those browsers at the same time. Together we bring over 20 years of web platform experience and over 12 years of expertise in building one of the largest and most reliable real-time communications services for consumers and business users.

The WebRTC is a standard often used by Google and Mozilla browsers, along with Chrome and Opera, but the flaws have been observed by Microsoft, who are now working side by side with Google to develop ORTC, and provide better service to internet users, which is mostly everyone. Though the New Xbox One Experience will be adjusted based on feedback from Preview Program members, Microsoft was able to share details on the changes as they are now designed. From this list users can see updates from a game developer, which of their friends are playing a specific game and get a link directly to that game’s Hub. You can go ahead and try the new release, however, they may or may not ruin your experience because Preview builds are those that are yet to be tested. And if you’re looking to purchase game digitally, your Microsoft account will show how much money you have when you’re checking out a game or browsing the marketplace.

If web standards are supposed to eliminate unnecessary in-fighting and strengthen interoperability between browsers, doesn’t having two competing real-time data APIs go against this ideal? For easy to access areas – Games, Movies and TV, Apps, and Music will have more real estate on the main Store page dedicated to surfacing top content to you. It seems Microsoft is still pushing for Edge to make up for the highly flawed Internet Explorer that has been met with numerous bugs and glitches, which turned quite a lot of users away from its services, resorting to the more popular Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Edge does have a sleek design and has received excellent praises for its performance as Window’s default browser, though it is a bit forcibly pushed on users. Microsoft has received complaints that it’s difficult to change it from the default option, at least much trickier than previous versions, but at least they’re adding improvements.
