Microsoft mentioned during their Windows 10 event the other day about deeper integration of Skype in the operating system.
Users will be able to get Skype messages in the the messaging apps across a number of devices to better support communication, and allow you to get in touch with your friends and family without switching apps.
The folks at Skype said in a blog post,
“Skype will come built into your communications suite on Windows 10 devices across your PC, tablet and phone. As always, we look for ways to make doing more together intuitive, and on your Windows 10 device what better way to do that than to build Skype directly into messaging, calling and video experiences so you don’t have to download an app and barely need to setup.”
This will give users the ability to communicate with each other, make audio and video calls without downloading a separate app, offering users with a unified platform which the company has promised for so long. It will also be integrated with the address book making the whole communication process a lot easier.
Microsoft is expected to drop the Windows 10 technical preview for phones sometime in February.
