It looks like Microsoft may be developing a new Skype universal app and we could get a preview build of it soon? It could be launched during Build?
Reddit user REEBS81 noticed a new option in the feedback app for “Skype UWP Preview”. See Microsoft wants you to leave a feedback for the Skype UWP Preview, the only problem is the app isn’t available yet, this has led us to believe we could see the app released soon, maybe in the next Insider preview build for Mobile/PC?
Either way this is good news, after using the revamped GroupMe UWP app, (which was developed by the same Skype team I might add), I was impressed and wondered why the mediocre Skype app on WP didn’t get the same treatment.
If you use Skype on mobile, then you know it’s no secret that it kinda sucks and even lacks some cool features you would find on its Android/iOS versions like direct access to your contacts for instance, amongst others.
I know some would argue that Skype is being integrated into the messaging app but I’m not sure everyone would want to use it. Needless to say, it is good to see a universal Skype app is on the way.
What do you think? Would you love to see a universal Skype app? Or are you satisfied with its integration into messaging app? Let us know in the comments below…
