The beta version of Skype for Web is now available globally, after the Skype team posted a blog update announcing the move.
"We’ve been hard at work and are pleased to announce that Skype for Web (Beta) is now available worldwide! Please see below for a list of supported languages," it said in the post.
As well as this, the team also announced that the instant messaging version of Skype can now be used by Chromebook and Linux users, who were previously unable to use any form of Skype.
"Also, good news for Chromebook and Linux users: you can now access Skype for Web (Beta) for instant messaging."
Skype had first launched the beta version of Skype for Web to a handful of users in November, but now the firm has widened this availability, explaining it should broaden access to the service.
"Anyone going to Skype.com (or web.skype.com) in the US and UK can sign in and connect to Skype for Web to get to their conversations in an instant without downloading the Skype app."
Skype for Web, while still in beta, offers many of the same features as its desktop counterpart, including support for video calls, instant messaging and audio calling.
Microsoft said that the web app will sync seamlessly with its desktop app, and will bring an improved Search tool. Optional Notifications are also available as pop-ups that will appear if you're using another app or viewing a different website in another browser window.
"Skype for Web is an important step for Skype as we move towards implementing the technology to make real-time communications on the web a reality," Microsoft added.
"But just as importantly, we're doing it because the hundreds of millions of people that visit Skype.com every month told us they want to call and IM when they visit our website.
"We know how critical it is for you to get to your conversations, and Skype for Web helps you get connected anytime."
Skype for Web is available on Skype.com in Internet Explorer, Chrome on Windows, Firefox and Safari, but you'll need to install a plug-in before you start using it.
The move comes after Microsoft recently declared it is ditching the 'Modern' version of its Skype application and will revert to just having a Windows desktop version of Skype.
The software giant detailed the change on its Skype blog, saying that it will take effect from 7 July. The reason given is that with Windows 10 coming, the desktop version of Skype will also be able to take advantage of touch input as well as keyboard and mouse, making the 'Modern' version designed for Windows 8.1 redundant.
"With the upcoming release of Windows 10 for PCs, it makes sense to use the Skype application optimized for mouse and keyboards use, capable of doing touch as well rather than two separate applications performing the same function," wrote Aga Guzik, head of Desktop Product Marketing for Skype.
