Messaging Skype Beta for Windows 10 Mobile Now Available for Download.

It appears that the Redmond-based company was inspired by Google’s move, as the search giant allows Hangouts to be used as main messaging app in Android devices.The Skype Messaging app for Windows 10 Mobile is now available in beta form from the Windows Store, and includes a new UI for Skype which is very similar to the Messaging app already found on Windows 10 Mobile.

Phone number discoverability is an amazing feature of Skype that sets it apart from other instant messaging apps such as Viber, WhatsApp, WeChat and others. Nick here for your Weekly news Round-Up, where I compile this week’s Microsoft news that’s been floating around the web, and talk about them in relative detail for your viewing pleasure!

It integrates individual Skype features where you’d expect them – Skype messaging into Messaging and Skype calling into Phone apps for the fastest way to make calls and send messages.

If you sign into Skype by using Microsoft account, the new feature will automatically connect to contacts from other address books such as Windows 8 and Microsoft office outlook.
