Skype has been eating a lot of footage from the past few days. First Microsoft released a brand new revamped version of Skype for Android and iOS users and now it looks like it’s time for Windows 10 mobile users. The company just released a beta version of the new Universal Skype app for Windows 10 Mobile Insider testers who can download it from Windows Store. Testers can also download the Universal Skype Video app as well as earlier promised by the company.
Universal Skype apps will boast of new robust features like integrated conversation history of Skype and your default SMS and phone call app. Apart from that you can experience an upgraded audio and video calling along with new features in messaging and use a whole bunch of new emoticons. This version of Skype will be functional across tablets, phones and desktops. The company is building these apps according to the brand new Windows 10 platform which can then be updated later for new operating systems.
The company discontinued Skype’s modern version in July 2015 for most Windows devices. The integrated desktop version is still available though. The official launch date of these Universal Skype apps is still unknown; however, some believe that the company might launch it alongside the new version of Windows 10 Mobile for their Windows Phones which is bound to happen at the end of this week. Microsoft says that these versions of Skype are the best till date, but the best reviews can only be given once it is fully launched.
