Skype heading to Windows Phone 7

Skype, the popular internet messaging service, is heading to Windows Phone 7. Joe Belfiore, Microsoft's VP of Windows Phone Program Management, provided an early glimpse at the communications app during today's MIX11 keynote.

Skype will definitely enhance the communications capabilities of our Windows Phones. Now we just need a front facing camera to take advantage of Skype's video features. While no specific date was mentioned, we should see Skype landing in the Marketplace later this Fall.

I guess WEbos is now the only mobile os without skype

NJKevin says:

Don't get too excited ... it hasn't happened yet.

1jaxstate1 says:

What's the point of skype if you're not doing video calls. There are dozens of internet messaging apps out there.

Trib#WP says:

Half the time I use Skype, I'm just doing audio. So I'm fine with just Skype audio for now.

Just because its Skype duh. On a serious note the next rev of windows phone will probably have front facing cameras

Los says:

That's nice and all, but how about some news on simple standard features like uhhh... custom ringtones? Any word on that yet?

Custom ringtones are in Mango and were demonstrated in the keynote

can't wait for custom ringtones. I had them on my razor back in the day.

NJKevin says:

Custom ringtones? Are you 16?WP7 needs folders, Flash support, a way to send videos from the phone, an update infrastructure that works ...

troygates says:

No need for flash anymore, Adobe and Microsoft are both embracing HTML5 full force. Adobe 5.5 has lots of HTML5 and IE9/10 are both focused on HTML5. I doubt flash will ever make it to WP7.

NJKevin says:

There is a boatload of Flash-enabled stuff ON the web ... when does it autoconvert? :-)

RayWP7 says:

Not sure what age has to do with anything. Use varies. I don't need custom ringtones, but my mother and little brother would like them. Why? BECAUSE ITS A STANDARD FEATURE ON EVEN THE CRAPPIEST OF NON-SMART PHONES THAT THEY LIKE.I don't know, people tend to set imaginary bars based on feature sets which have been available for eons.Remember cut/paste when Apple "announced" it? C/P had been available on flip-phones, for God's sake.Here's to a one-size-fits-all platform.Heh.

Los says:

I'd like to see that. Also, any word on being able to send more than pics in MMS? like videos and voice recordings

kasser says:

Good to see Skype on WP7, would make sense if you could integrate certain contacts directly into the Peoples Hub.MS need to get moving on a decent SatNav app, then I'm happy
