How to Activate Your Free Skype Minutes with Microsoft 365 Family Plan
So, I recently purchased Microsoft 365 Family plan, simply because my company enforces conditional access with all the security stuff that limits me from using the Microsoft 365 desktop apps on my personal laptop without joining my PC to AAD. Plus, my Office 2013 license for my personal laptop is going into end-of-support this coming April, so I needed to find a new solution. In this post, I’ll show you how to activate your free Skype minutes with Microsoft 365 Family plan.
First, let’s talk about the benefits of Microsoft 365 Family. It’s a great option for families because up to six users can install Microsoft 365 apps on their devices. Plus, it comes with 1TB of OneDrive storage per user, advanced security features, and ongoing updates and support. And the best part is, it’s a better value compared to purchasing individual licenses.
Now, back to the free Skype minutes. The activation button or link to the free credit seems to be missing from both Microsoft and Skype portal due to a backend issue that Microsoft is still trying to fix. However, I found a simple workaround that worked for me.
To activate your free 60 minutes subscription, use this link: https://www.skype.com/en/office/get-skype/. Simply enter your Microsoft account details, and you’ll be redirected to the Skype download page with your free Skype minutes activated.
I know Skype isn’t as popular as it used to be, but I still find it useful for certain situations. And hey, free is free, right?
In conclusion, Microsoft 365 Family plan is a great option for families looking for an affordable and feature-rich productivity suite. And with our simple activation process, you can also enjoy free Skype minutes. So, go ahead and give it a try!
