Skype for Windows 10 now lets Insiders transfer money

Last year, Microsoft enabled Skype users on Android and iOS to send money to one another as part of a partnership with PayPal. Now the company is finally extending that same capability to the Windows 10 app – for Insiders at least.

As spotted by Italian blog Aggiornamenti Lumia (via MSPU), the feature is now in preview with Skype version, and it's fairly straightforward to use. A new "Transfer Money" icon is available on the profiles of your Skype contacts. Clicking it will allow you to enter an amount to request or send. From there, you'll have to link your PayPal and Microsoft accounts, at which point you can complete the transaction.

Keep in mind that Skype Money is only available in a limited set of countries and currencies. You can find the full list of supported countries at the Skype Money FAQ.

To get started with Skype Money on Windows 10, you can opt-in to test preview versions of the app via the app settings page.
