Skype Windows Phone 8 Preview ReleasedNovember 12, 2012 No Comments
Skype for Windows Phone 8 preview release is now available for users of the new OS which supports full video Skype calls as well as seamless VOIP integration throughout. Below is a short trailer and description for the app below:
In addition, Skype notifications can be added to the lock screen to appear alongside missed calls, unread emails and text messages, so there’s no need to unlock your phone to check if you’ve missed a message or call in Skype. Also, just like Windows 8, once you sign in to Skype on your phone, your Skype contacts are automatically added to your Windows Phone, making it possible to call the people who matter to you via Skype right from the People Hub.
Very nice indeed! Keep in mind that this release is just a preview and not the full version, so if bugs are present, just know they probably wont be in the full version.
