Microsoft builds Skype into Windows 10 and adds messaging

Microsoft is building Skype directly into Windows 10, so that users no longer have to download a separate app to use it.

The company is also introducing a built-in Messaging app, which will allow users to send instant Skype-to-Skype messages to each other for free.

Because Skype will be an underlying, native component of the communications suite on Windows 10 devices, users will automatically be able to make audio and video calls, and send instant messages on their PC, tablet and phone.

Skype will synch across all your devices, as well as your mobile and e-mail address books so that you don’t have to search for specific Skype user names. It will also work across multiple platforms, including iOS and Android.
