Microsoft Edge support for using Skype without a browser plug-in is coming by the end of 2015
If you like using the Microsoft Edge web browser inside Windows 10, and are also a heavy user of Skype, there's some good news coming soon. Microsoft says it plans to offer a way to launch Skype video and audio calls without the need for a plug-in application, sometime before the end of 2015.
Edge users can already go to Outlook.com to make video and audio calls via Skype. However, this upcoming feature is a result of Microsoft's support of the Object Real-Time Communications (ORTC) APIs for Edge. In fact, if you are in the Windows Insider program, and have downloaded the latest 10547 preview build of Windows 10, you can try out Edge's ORTC API support right now.
