Skype adds auto-recharge account function


Skype_rechargeSkype wants you to worry about one less thing in your already complicated life: your Skype credit. The P2P phone service added an auto-recharge function that will add credit from PayPal to your Skype account whenever it dips below a certain amount. The amount will vary based on currency, but Skype indicates that it’s roughly around $2 U.S., which makes sense. For people that use the paid Skype services frequently, this is a simple way to ensure your service isn’t interrupted due to a lack of Skype credit. Which reminds me, my SkypeIn and Skype Voicemail accounts are set to expire this month…good timing on the auto-recharge!



It’s also a good way to lose track of how much money you’re spending on your internet phone bill. But overall, the good probably outweighs the bad here.
