Hands-on with the universal Skype experience in Windows 10 Mobile


Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that the company will be releasing a new universal Skype experience for Windows 10. While the new Skype experience isn’t available on the PC yet, we’ve got our hands on the new Skype apps for Windows 10 Mobile. The Skype apps basically integrate into the Messaging app on Windows 10, where you can send messages via Skype and call someone via Skype as well.

well it's here Microsoft this weekend quietly released a new app called Skype Messaging for Windows 10 Mobile. We say “quietly” because it didn’t make an announcement — the company merely added a new listing on the Windows Store.

In July, Microsoft retired its modern Windows app, pushing Windows users to use the desktop version instead. At the same time, the company has said many times it plans to integrate Skype messaging, calling, and video features right into Windows 10.

This is the mobile version of that integration. Presumingly, Microsoft will bundle the universal app when it releases Windows 10 Mobile, and push it out as an updated to Windows 10 for PCs as well, though that has yet to be confirmed.
