Daily Update, Nov. 12th – Install the Skype for Windows Phone 8 Preview Today

Two weeks ago, we announced that we were working hard on Skype for Windows Phone 8. Just like our bold new experience for Windows 8, the new Skype for Windows Phone will be fast, modern, and beautiful, while still delivering the best of what you’ve come to expect from Skype.

So today, we are excited to announce the availability of an early, preview version of Skype for Windows Phone 8. In this Preview, you’ll get all of the Skype basics in the new, modern design along with many of the new features such as integration with the People Hub and a combined contact list with buddies from Windows Live Messenger.

You can also read more about the preview of Skype for Windows Phone 8 over on the Skype Garage Blog.
