Skype for Web has added a few new features today to bring it to parity with the desktop apps. You can now watch YouTube videos right from your conversation. Video links are embedded into your instant messages along with the URL.

You get all the same volume and full-screen controls you have in YouTube, but you won’t have to open a new browser window to watch the video.

Also, notifications was added to Skype for Web, so that you'll never miss an important IM or call. As long as you're signed in, you'll receive notifications, even if you’re in another browser tab or another app.
