Skype for Windows Phone 8 in Preview


Skype for Windows Phone 8 is now available to download in Preview. The VoIP/chat service has been tailored especially for use with Microsoft’s new operating system.

New features include:

  • Seeing all your Skype contacts in the People Hub and starting a conversation with just a tap
  • Signing in with your Microsoft Account and IM with your Messenger buddies
  • Even when the app is closed, you’ll begin to receive some call and message notifications so you can respond right away (under development)

According to Microsoft in a note on the download page: “Some capabilities listed above are a work-in-progress and may not function consistently. This includes, but is not limited to: call reliability and the ability to receive incoming calls and chat notifications when outside of the app.”

You can download Skype for Windows Phone 8 Preview here at the Windows Phone Store.
