First, it separates this messaging functionality into a discrete app, much as Facebook did with Facebook Chat. Looks like the "new" version has a different focus, but still...
And second, that self-destruct functionality provides the privacy and non-permanence that the younger set seems to crave when they communicate with each other. You'd be surprised how quickly a short video can turn into a great conversation." And here are the pertinent details. You can get Skype Qik for Windows Phone, i Phone and Android handsets.
