Skype for Windows Phone hits Marketplace


Within many circles, Skype is a must-have application across desktop and mobile devices. The arrival of Skype for Windows Phone brings owners of those handsets in from the cold.

Skype for Windows Phone has arrived, and the free app is available from the Windows Phone Marketplace. It has been tested and certified on the Nokia Lumia 710, 800 and 900; the HTC Titan and Radar; and the Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash. Windows Phone 7.5 Mango or later is required.

It works over 4G, 3G and Wi-Fi networks, allowing free (data charges may apply) voice and video calls to other Skype users. Company officials said the Windows Phone version interoperates with Skype for Windows 4.2 and above, Skype for Mac OS X 5.0 and above, Skype for Linux, Skype for iOS 3.0 and above, Skype for Android 2.0 and above, and Skype for TVs.

Skype for Windows can also be used to place calls to fixed lines and mobiles at rates that are often lower than those charged by mobile carriers.

Changes to Skype for Windows since February's beta release include video calling in portrait mode, and a range of contact management capabilities.
