Windows 10 Skype

As part of the November update for Windows 10, Microsoft has launched what it is calling its "Consumer Preview" of the integrated Skype features in Windows 10.

Microsoft decided to retire its Windows 8 Skype app earlier this year in favor of adding Skype to Video and Messaging apps in Windows 10, rather than develop a new universal Skype app for the OS. Microsoft is using the same approach for Windows 10 Mobile as well, adding Skype features to its Video, Phone and Messaging apps.

Microsoft's blog post shows how Windows 10 users can open and access the Skype video and messaging preview apps. Since Microsoft is calling this a "Consumer Preview", the company will more than likely add more features and improvements to both apps in the future, before it removes the "Preview" tag.
