By
Skype has announced that it now plays host to 2 billion minutes of communication each day.

The Microsoft-owned firm revealed the milestone on its blog, posting a tongue-in-cheek infographic to put the figure into perspective.

"2 billion minutes is a testament to our users who are making Skype the everyday communications hub that brings people together," read a statement on the Skype blog.

"This massive amount of connection - enough time to watch 1.6 million movies - is also a testament to the hard work of our product teams who have enabled these great experiences.

"Whether making a voice or video call, sending an instant message, sharing a file or connecting with a group of friends, now more than ever before, Skype brings people together whenever they are apart."

The figure, which comprises internet phone calls, video calls, group chats, and instant messages, is expected to rise considerably in the near future after Microsoft revealed plans to make Skype its default chat programme across all of its platforms.

Skype is available for free on a wide range of platforms, including PCs, mobile devices, games consoles and connected television sets.
