Skype app coming to Windows Phone 'soon'

Speaking at CES 2012 last week tech giants Microsoft and Skype have confirmed the VoIP service is to hit Windows Phone in app form 'soon'

 

Adding to its rapidly growing list of high-profile applications the Windows Phone 7 platform looks set to bring Skype to its growing user base with Microsoft revealing that a WP7 friendly version of the VoIP service will be “coming out soon.”

Having previously suggested that Skype would hit the newly refreshed Windows Phone system in late 2011, Microsoft has once again spoken out on bringing the leading video chatting service to its mobile operating system with a launch now expected in the coming weeks.

Windows Phone 7 Skype App

Currently available on most leading platforms including Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android offerings the Skype app allows users to make and receive VoIP calls, video calls or send instant messages to contacts over Wi-Fi and 3G networks.

Confirming the imminent Skype for Windows Phone arrival at CES 2012 Skype's VP of products, Rick Osterloh, revealed that Microsoft's Skype division is "working on a Windows Phone product that will be coming out soon.”
