The release of Windows 10 has got all the app makers up and running to launch supportive versions of their respective applications.
One such application is Skype, which is Microsoft’s own product.
Skype had made an announcement in July, in which they stated that their first priority would be to launch a version of the application that would work well with Windows 10 and Windows 10 mobile.
Of course it is the latter that interests us more, as it drops a hint that there really might be a Windows 10 for Mobiles.
Or, will it be a universal app that would work for all Windows 10 devices?
The universal app concept sounds much more plausible as there is no concrete news of the Windows 10 mobile OS as yet.
A preview version of the universal app for Skype Windows 10 devices has been leaked already but it is not available for download on the Windows Store.
Skype, like always will not just stick to messaging, but will include the ability to make and receive audio and video calls; after all, that is what defines what Skype is and makes it the granddaddy of all messaging apps in the world.
Some screenshots of the leaked app have been seen on the internet, which have shown the ability of users to be able to reply to messages directly from the action center of their mobiles.
This news was circulated by WinBeta. We must however consider the fact that extensive information is unavailable, hence, we would have little or no idea of how genuine these leaks might be.
Also, as per WMPU, this new build of Skype has already cleared tests on Windows 10 Mobile Build 10512, which is again information we cannot really completely believe, although the source mentioned that it was able to lay their hands on a preview version of Universal Skype for Windows 10.
WMPU also stated that Skype, Messaging as well as Video will be integrated in the application.
Reports state that when Skype is installed on Windows 10, it will become the default messaging app and will be able to automatically integrate with SMS and MMS.
Users can pick what to send and where, based on your selections from phonebook contacts.
This would be similar to the messaging app for Windows Phone 7.
As of now, what we are able to see are just leaks and can be able to get Skype universal app for Windows 10 only later.
Right now, as the news points out, the preview Skype app has only been created to work on Windows 10 mobile. More news is sure to be available soon and we will keep you updated.
