Skype for Windows Phone 8 preview now available

With my shiny new HTC 8x in hand, I’ve been waiting for the Skype preview for Windows Phone 8 and now it’s here. My pal Derek Snyder announced the availability on the Skype Big Blog. Some of the key features for me


  • Skype contacts right from the People Hub and see updates through Live Tiles.
  • Sign in with your Microsoft Account and IM with your Messenger contacts
  • Call and message notifications appear even when the app is closed and in the background.
  • A new modern design – as beautiful as the Skype Windows 8 phone app!
