It’s been almost a year since Microsoft bought Skype, so it’s no surprise that the companies have been working on a Skype voice and video chat for Windows Phone devices. Now the first public beta is available.
You can download the app for free from the Windows Phone Marketplace. You can make and receive voice/video calls and instant messages to anyone else using Skype, whether on a Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Mac, PC or television.
It lets you make audio or video calls for free over WiFi, 3G, or 4G connections. You can also purchase Skype credit to make calls to phone numbers for international calling rates that are lower than those offered by your phone company.
