The Microsoft-owned messaging service today announced an update which will allow users to send money through PayPal to their friends and family. You'll need the newest version of Skype in order to get going. Skype will add a new feature aptly dubbed Send Money in 22 countries, from the United States to Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain, supporting quick and safe capital circulation without any need for you to exit the mobile app. The new payment system is based on PayPal, one of the very best online money transfer services.

To try it out, swipe right when you're chatting with someone then tap Send Money. And don't worry about sending money overseas. Send Money is available to some users in some countries today - but works for nearly any Android or iPhone device in your pocket right this minute. Sending and money over skype will be directly from and to the linked PayPal account, and the only difference is you are not on the PayPal app/website.

This integration between Skype and PayPal makes it incredibly easy for users to transfer money to a contact on Skype without having to jump between this app and their browser or banking app.
