DataPoint: Microsoft’s Skype DAU has grown 82 percent in a year

It looks like we might not be too far off from a “Jetsons” future after all. According to AppData, Skype is gaining Facebook daily active users (DAUs), meaning video calling could become the norm as more people are working remotely. On Jan. 30, 2014, AppData reported 4.9 million DAUs and on the same date in 2013, it reported nearly 2.7 million DAUs. That equals a gain of 2.2 million DAUs in one year.

Will video begin to dominate calling communications even more this year? What do you think?
