Skype for Windows Phone 8 Preview

The Windows Phone 8 was officially launched on October 29, 2012 which includes some interesting features. We had the opportunity to try out Windows Phone 8X and during this time, I was wondering how I could not try out the new Skype App on Windows Phone 8. Luckily, the Skype for Windows Phone 8 Preview is now announced and is available for download from the Windows Phone store for the Windows Phone 8 users.

One of the nice feature of the Skype for Windows Phone 8 is the ability of running the app in the background and also the integration to the Windows Phone OS.

You will be able to see all your Skype contacts like any other contacts in the People Hub of the Windows Phone and lets you to sign in with your Microsoft Account and chat with your Skype friends instantly.
