After the announcement of Windows Phone 8 version of Skype two weeks ago, they had recently released the app yesterday. Just like the entire OS of Windows Phone 8, Skype for Windows Phone 8 is designed to be fast, fluid, clean and simple. In addition to Windows 8 version, the Windows Phone 8 version allows you to get the combined contact list with buddies from Windows Live Messenger. Perhaps, Windows Live Messenger doesn’t seem to be extra fast and fluid enough as there are still traces of glassy stuffs there. At least in the new Outlook which combines both the Outlook account and Hotmail account into one Microsoft account, it is already quite fast and fluid enough but they still have work to do to ensure that it gets compatible with other web browsers.
You’ll have to keep in mind that this is in Preview state so expect the bugs to be there. Also, we don’t even know if there’s going to be Windows Phone 7.5 and 7.8 versions of Skype in the future?
