According to unconfirmed new reports, Microsoft is now working on an instant video social network that’s named Huddl. Currently, you need to have a Microsoft employee account to sign into the website, which means that there is no way to see if it actually works now or not.

According to the website, it will allow users to “discover video conversation serendipitously.” The user will be able to instantly switch between video calls and connect with people who share common interests. This might be similar to the web version of Skype but instead focus on meeting and talking with people that you don’t know but who have the same interests as you.

It’s interesting that Microsoft Edge doesn’t currently work with the website, instead suggesting you download either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. We are pretty confident that it will soon work with Microsoft Edge and will most likely use the same technology that Skype for Web is using in Microsoft’s new web browser.

According to the website, Huddl might also allow you to start a group video chat in which you’ll be able to invite your friends. In addition, Huddl will also be used as a verb as inside its code we found the following line: “No one is huddling. Why not start your own?”

Hopefully, Microsoft will release some official information about Huddl in the next couple of weeks as it is a very promising service. Will you try out the Huddl video social network once it will be officially released by Microsoft?
