New Skype on Windows Phone 8

Joining the beautiful Windows 8 Skype app is a new Skype app on Windows Phone 8. Its now always on, always ready yet has limited battery drain. Learn more on the Skype Big Blog. Here’s the stuff I really like


  • Skype contacts are automatically added to your Windows Phone so you can open a contact card from a person and dial them directly using Skype.
  • Skype now has a notification icon on the home screen
  • It integrates Messenger friends if you’ve linked your Microsoft account with your Skype name.


…and the interface. Clean and beautiful, just like it is on Windows 8.

It’s coming to the Windows Phone Store very soon.
