First view of the unified messaging app with integrated Skype
Universal Messaging app coming soon
Microsoft is yet to release the first public version of the Messaging app for Windows 10 devices, but several screenshots have already leaked online (through the Russian website Onetile) to show us how the app look like on phones.
We can see how the app will integrate Skype, Video and Messaging, so users can have a unified Messaging experience across Windows 10 devices – PCs, tablets and phones.
The company retired its Windows 8.1 app, while the current version for phones hasn’t received major features and improvements for a long time. With the release of the new Messaging app, all Windows 10 users won’t need to have a standalone Skype app installed on their devices, although Microsoft will keep the desktop version of Skype as an alternative.
Microsoft could release the unified messaging app along with a new build for phones next week. According to Gabriel Aul, Windows 10 Mobile Build 10530 is being tested internally and is the main candidate for the next preview roll out to Insiders.
