Messaging Skype Beta now available for Windows 10 Mobile
Unified Skype-messaging experience is available as a Beta
Microsoft has just released the first Beta version of the new Messaging/Skype app for Windows 10 Mobile. You can download the app from the Store on a smartphone running Windows 10 Mobile Preview builds.
Keep in mind that this is an unfinished beta version, so bugs and crashes can be expected. With Messaging Skype you can make calls and send messages to Skype users on any platform directly from the main Messaging app and Phone apps in Windows 10 Mobile.
From the app description:
Skype Messaging, Calling and Video *Preview* is a new way to experience Skype features. It integrates individual Skype features where you’d expect them – Skype messaging into Messaging and Skype calling into Phone apps for the fastest way to make calls and send messages.
It also adds quick access to Skype video calling. With Skype built in, you’ll be able to reach anyone who uses Skype on iPhones, Androids, even PCs with just a couple of clicks.
As this is a preview release, we ask that you help us make it better by telling us what’s great and what needs some work. To help us identify issues, we will collect logs so we can investigate. Thanks for participating in our Preview program!
