[Update] The App us live now

Today, we have started to roll out the new Skype Preview for Windows 10 Mobile as well as an updated Skype Preview for Windows 10 PCs to members of the Windows Insiders Program.*

As I posted in an earlier post  the UWP app is under development and is coming, for insiders, later today in Windows Store.

This release will bring a few features to  Windows 10 phones:

  • The ability to make group calls for free with up to 25 friends at a time.
  • Talk face to face (video 1:1)
  • Messaging
  • Share photos and emoticons
  • You can reply from your notification center, no need to open the app.

Later this summer, with a new update, Skype will bring a new feature on Windows 10. The ability to send SMS messages from a PC or Mobile. The app will be able to send an receive group messages and photos, as well as a single view for SMS and Skype conversations.

My opinion of this app is that now is not yet a full featured app as the old PC Skype program, but develops are trying to include all features from the PC version and to integrate it better with Windows 10 capabilities as Cortana and others.
