    On the home screen, we need to find the Skype tile.
    It has a blue tile background, and in the middle there is the Skype logo, which is a white circle with a blue letter "S" inside. If Skype has not been pinned to the home screen, then swipe left and find it in the "Apps" menu.

    Now, it's going to bring up the camera with a message that states, "Looking good!
    Hit record when you're ready." It's going to give us time to get ready, check how good we are looking.

    Now, we want to press the record button in the middle of the screen at the bottom.
    Then we're going to talk into the camera. We're just going to make a very short message because it's not essential to make anything long, just to give an idea of what we're trying to create and how to do it.

    Now, as we can see, the video message is attached and is being sent in the chat.
    It will take some time to send because a video is a large file, and it takes time to upload a file of that size. When it's finished uploading, the message will be sent.
