Recently at their Worldwide Partner Conference, Microsoft amazed people with a new major feature to Skype. They announced, Skype Translator. Quick summary, Skype Translator will be able to translate speech from both ways. For example, if Person A speaks in German, Person B (who is from America) will receive the speech translated in English. Text captions also come with it. Currently, it is not known what languages are supported.
This will definitely be a big difference on how Skype will be used. From customer support, to individual interviews, Skype is definitely getting more useful.
