As we reported on Thursday, Windows Insider members on the Fast ring can get an update for Skype Preview that adds the ability to send and receive SMS messages. This is available on both the PC and Mobile apps. In a blog post, Microsoft stated the SMS messaging features will be rolled out to all Skype Preview users on Windows 10 "over the next couple of months"

The same blog post also outlined what the Skype team plans to add to the Preview app on Windows 10 in the near future:

  • Improved messaging – message sent status, copy and paste quoted messages, read/unread line indicator, preview a URL in chat, keyboard shortcuts, drag and drop of files and photos, drag and drop of URLs from browsers, and video messaging.
  • Easier calling – start call or conversation from profile page, group calls continue even when the initiator leaves, audio/video device settings, loudspeaker improvements.
  • Additional Windows Mobile updates – transparent tile, video calls will default to loud speaker for video calls, and improved back button navigation.
