Skype has now added the ability for Mac and Windows users to send gift cards for call credits to family and friends when a birthday notification pops up on screen.
The added feature comes with the launch of a new version for Mac and Windows 8 desktop applications announced today by the instant messenger and VoIP service. The update also comes with a re-designed toolbar for PC users.
The birthday notification is now accompanied by the following message: “Forgot the birthday card? We can help you send them a Skype Gift Card instead.”
Users wishing to send a Skype gift card can choose the design of the card, the amount, from where the amount should be debited and write a personal message.
