What is the Skype HoloLens Add-in and why do I need it?
The Skype HoloLens Add-in enables calls and rich interactions with someone using Skype for HoloLens. With the add-in you’ll not only see what they see, you’ll get special tools to interact with their environment. If you are using the latest version of Skype for Windows, you’ll see an option to download and install the add-in when you start or answer a call from a Skype for HoloLens user.
I am still very much foggy about what halogens is supposed to do.

Skype to drop video messaging feature from Windows Phone app
Read more:http://mspoweruser.com/skype-to-drop...ows-phone-app/According to AdDuplex around 90% of phones running a Microsoft mobile operating system are using Windows Phone 8.1 and lower.
It seems Skype does not want much more to do with those people, as they are deprecating support for millions of Windows Phone users.
In their documentation announcing a new feature – the ability to save video messages, they also note:
Windows Phone 8.1 users, you have been written off.
Skype file transfers limited to 100 MB
Source: http://www.ghacks.net/2016/05/22/sky...limited-100mb/While Microsoft's Skype software is certainly not the best way to send files to contacts, it is without doubt convenient to do so if you are using the software anyway.
All you need to do is select a contact and the send file icon, pick a file from the local system to transfer it to the contact.
Sharing files seems limited to the Skype desktop program at the moment, the Skype app for Windows supports the sending of images only it seems at this point in time.
Microsoft announced several changes coming to sharing files in Skype for the desktop recently. These were not published on the official Skype blog but only on a support page though which makes it likely that many users missed them.
First the good news: when you share files using Skype, it will automatically sync across all devices that you are using.
This means that downloads are available on mobile devices as well automatically. Microsoft also notes that transfers will resume automatically if the connection is lost for whatever reason so that files need to be downloaded only once.
Bad news is, that Microsoft is limited the size of files that you can share using Skype to 100 Megabyte per file
If you try to send a file that is larger than 100 MB you will get the error message not sent - file is larger than 100.0 MB.
Glad to know but I always do them via e-mail as that is how my contacts like to receive them
