Download Skype for Windows Phone — The full blown app Skype is now officially available for Windows Phone.
Get ready to communicate with your family and friends right from your Windows Phone gadget as the official Skype for Windows Mobile phones was just rolled out.
With Skype for Windows Phone, you can create and hold one-to-one and group chats, never mind the fact that you might be engaged in the middle of a call at the moment, and change your profile information on the move, amongst other. There is one downside thing about this version that makes it almost useless as other blogs say… no one can call you via Skype unless you have the app open and running on your phone. Unlike Android and iOS, Skype needs to be your active app in order to receive calls as there is no background functionality at all in the app. What do you think?
Be mindful though about your data plan, you might get a bill shock if you’re not on an unlimited plan because of the data transfer rate of video calls. Better safe, make sure you have a ready Wi-Fi connection with you.
